This art project was banned 3 times by the Alberta Government officials. Art was said to be inappropriate on the Alberta Legislature grounds by Sgt.-at-Arms Brian Hodgson, the Director of the Legislative Assembly Office's Visitor, Ceremonial and Security Services division. From February 2016 to October 2017 I picketed and defended my right to freely express myself against the Alberta Government until the issue was resolved. All the while I continued to paint and show my art ignoring the bans.

May 8, 2016, Wildfire in Fort McMurray Reactions
May 8, 2016, 5 days of wildfire in Fort McMurray: During today's Fire and Rain outdoor art show held just inside Sir Winston Churchill square a white haired, weather faced First Nations man told me he wanted to see Fort McMurray and all the oil sands industries destroyed by the wildfires for poisoning the water, the animals and his people living downstream from the oil-sands.
