First outdoor art show and tell - Alberta Legislature grounds
2019-08-15 Alberta Legislature grounds: What a thrill and honour for me to have these ladies donning beautiful dresses with the Alberta Shirriff, pose in front of my first outdoor art show and tell this year after completing my 9th last painting earlier this week, completing my 2019 More Circles than Squares art project. All that's left are art shows and tell until December 21, 2019 when this project officially ends. My 2020 Freedom to Express and Listen officially gets underway this fall.  See Chicago Exploring July 5-8, 2019 Continued...

Trouble Maker, the coming storms

'Trouble maker, the coming storms' Started fall 2017, locations outside #NDP Premier Rachel Notley's Alberta Legislature office. Again winter 2019 during a protest between #yellowVests #Antifacist. Completed today outside #UCP Premier Jason Kenney's Alberta Legislature office. More Circles than Squares art project
Inspired from my 2016 Fire and Rain art project painting 'Fire, Rain, Circles, Squares' my preconceived impression of humans, land animals, sea animals and plant life after the 6th extinction becomes the next generation of fossil fuels.

Sideways (No heART)
"Sideways" by Doug Brinkman Was inspired  Saturday morning July, 27 2019 while walking to the Alberta Legislature for a day of painting. Along the way I saw a red man (panhandler) yelling at almost everyone it seemed walking by in front of the 7-11 on Jasper avenue and 104th street. A black man toting a luggage bag came out of the 7-11 and the red man asked him for money. The black man declined so the red man began to yell at him too. The black man responded by gesturing to the red man with his middle finger and this agitated the red man to jump up and yell at the black man "GO BACK FROM WHERE YOU CAME FROM!" challenging the black man to fight. The black man fled having no interest in fighting while the red man kept yelling...

The Legislature has no dome 

As this painting was in the planning stages earlier in the week, news broke of an 800-year-old cathedral Notre-Dame in France suffered severe damage from fire.

"Mother Earth is ready to cleanse. The natural shape is a circle, our cells are a circle, stars are a circle, the sun, the moon, the earth. The mother's womb is a circle. I don't believe we should be living in these squares." Chief No Tribe, 2016 Fire and Rain art project
