1924 Maligne Lake 2014 : It was in 1924, when members of Canada’s Group of Seven had expanded their subject matter of painting to include western Canada. That year, Lawren S. Harris, a founder and key spokesperson for the Group, and fellow Group member A.Y. Jackson traveled out to Jasper National Park.​ In the early spring of 2014, 90 years later I spent my evenings sketch studying Lawren Harris and A.Y.Jackson from inside the Art Gallery of Alberta where thier works were on display. Later that year I set out with my backpack, canvas and oils in late spring and early fall to paint from the same area of Maligne Lake as my mentors did 90 years ago.

Participation: The acrylic "Community (Flower) Bed" was painted on location inside the Alberta Legislature grounds fall 2015. While painting I invited several guests to add paint to the bed of flowers and leaves. It was just as exciting for me to watch them paint as it was for my guests to participate.

Artist, Active Citizen Doug Brinkman - Age 61
I first expressed my creativity as a young child drawing on my parent's basement walls and inside the blank pages of my grandfather's leather bound encyclopaedia collection. My parents put a stop to that and began to supply my creative needs with a steady stream of paper and pencils to draw with.  In high school I took courses in commercial art and printing. I also learned how to develop photos and produce small video features while during my lunch hour I would sell my "Out To Lunch" high school newspaper for 5 cents a copy as the high school newspaper editor. As an artist I was very inspired by Canada's group of 7 and in my teens and early twenties I would spend many Saturdays inside the McMichael Canadian Art Collection
I came to Edmonton, Alberta from Scarborough, Ontario in 1980 to continue my career as a graphic arts craftsman (newspaper printer), first for the Edmonton Sun and finally with the Edmonton Journal. I was involved with community theatre painting sets and volunteered as public relations director for Walterdale Playhouse Theatre. In 2007 I began producing YouTube news stories first as a civil information activist now known as Citizen Free News or Citizen Free News Sharing. I continue to produce You Tubes as a commitment to my subscribers and my community. Some of my other achievements include a pilot’s licence and completing the  West Coast Trail in my 40s 3 times.  Thanks for dropping by - Enjoy my website!

My 2016 paint project focuses on the wildfires that has increasingly charred Alberta’s and Canada’s woodlands each year because of global warming. As a video news activist in past I have captured the images from the news stories I produced on YouTube and transferred those images onto the canvases with oil paints and acrylics. This year I plan to focus my camera on the environment, specifically on the destructive nature that global warming is having on forests here in Alberta. I will document my experiences on YouTube and produce a series of paintings for public outdoor shows later this year on the Alberta Legislature grounds and other public places in around Edmonton. The $1500 I need to raise will help me pay for travel costs, accommodation to the locations I need to travel to paint. Funds will help me cover the costs of canvases, paints and also to help advertise and promote this paint project when my outdoor exhibitions begins over the summer. Last year as a full time artist I made $950 in sales so this is why I'm asking for your help today in funding my 2016 paint project “Fire &Rain.” Help me make my paint project a reality for me and for others to contemplate, appreciate and share its story.  
Thank you, Doug Brinkman

Pop Dazzled by Everyday - Not All Treated Equal
Make Noise - Free Speech
Three paintings that were displayed 19 times from November 10 - December 22, 2015 at various downtown locations. The theme of this outdoor art show was to highlight and reflect upon expression of free of speech made by those who employ loud speakers, bull-horns and shouting on the streets of Edmonton. This outdoor art show was inspired by the City of Edmonton's intensions of passing noise bylaws similar to Calgarys that would require participants who employ noise to express free speech would need to apply for permits or risk fines. 
This YouTube was produced from excerpts taken during " Pop Dazzled by Everyday - Not All Treated Equal" outdoor art shows and from Doug Brinkman's Citizen Free News. The complete series of 9 YouTubes can be viewed  from the  YouTube Playlist 
The Alberta Legislature has joined the City of Edmonton putting a stop to my outdoor art shows. Since spring of 2015 into 2016 I staged just under 100 outdoor art shows and painting demonstrations. The City now requires me to pay for a food truck vendor’s permit and obtain liability insurance first before I continue my shows while the Province does not want me painting on the Legislature grounds at all because they are worried of being sued if someone is injured. I plan to continue painting outdoors.
