I completed my bench for the latest cultural initiative by the City of Airdrie and can't wait to see which community it ends up in. I love seeing it in my garden, tucked in behind the purple Veronicas and yellow succulents. And though I questioned my choice of image for the painting, fluctuating between the combination of a variety of landscapes - hoodoos, Rocky Mountains and prairies - to images of Airdrie, I am glad I settled on the hoodoos. It's fun to brighten up the colours of that desert landscape with yellows, oranges, blues and purples, and I think children who have visited the region northeast of us will recognize it. This is the fourth public art project I've had the privilege of being involved in with the city, three bus passes, the banner project, a construction hoarding project, and two bus shelters. That's what it's all about to me, beautifying our community for the families that choose to make this place home.
