This is a 9″ x 11″ acrylic on canvas board called School’s Out – Goldfish. I painted this in 2009 and it is a bit of whimsy. Very appropriate for this time of year, because I do believe school is out or it will be shortly.
Aside from that, I went to the public meeting last night regarding the extension of road that endangered a lot of wildlife and park lands. We had a significant number of people show up and what was most heartening was to see an 18 year old girl stand up and tell everyone what this bit of park land meant to her. The powers that be, were not expecting such a large number of people and they certainly weren’t expecting to see such vocal opposition. This will not be so easy for them to push through. Another thing that came to light was that this extension was probably being encouraged by some multinational business (who will remain nameless) that has little concern for our best interests.
