Downstream

14 x 21"

Shortly before the disastrous floods in Calgary and other areas of Alberta in 2013, I painted this scene of the Elbow River, which joins the Bow River and, assisted by torrential rains, caused downtown Calgary to go under water. The Stampede Grounds and the Calgary Zoo as well as many new and old buildings had a devastating soaking. Calgary is a strong and vibrant city with a very competent mayor - plus thousands of residents who immediately joined the official emergency workers to help restore order.
