The Alberta Legislature Willow Tree.
2023-09-16, Painter's notes: Sarah and I married on May 19, 2016, on a wildfire smokey day under a large willow tree on the back lawns of the Alberta Legislature. We are excited to learn a new willow tree was planted next to the beech tree last week for Orange Shirt Day.
Orange Shirt Day Linden Tree survived being caged during the construction of lighting and a new sidewalk shaped like a cross. In Greece and Eastern Europe, the linden tree was used in numerous rituals, including divination, marriage, fertility, and healing. In Romania and other Slavic countries, the linden held a divine presence and was thought to be a link between life and death. In Germany, the tree symbolized justice and peace.

September marks the end of my outdoor 2023 paint season, which began in March. I'll continue my outdoor art shows year-round and paint indoors inside City Hall, & QEII buildings until spring. The remaining 2 weeks of September will be dedicated to indigenous residential school survivors and EPS, honour & duty.
