When I first looked at it, it reminded me of Notre Dame Cathedral burning. It also reminds me of some of Van Gogh's paintings. If we are burning now, like Notre Dame, we will rise better and stronger.

Painter's log 2020-10-07 Alberta Legislature: Today, I gave a woman I met twice in 3 years, this Legislature painting 'The Dome' inspired by my 2020 Freedom to Express & Listen art project that challenges the Alberta Government my right to freedom of the press and freedom of expression. Today we shared ideas about racism and human rights issues and we agreed on the importance of listening to those we don't always agree with. Terie said of what I've learned from my own journey of activism of 14 years, expressed through social art needs to be documented and shared. As a young black woman, Terie worked as a journeyman in a male-dominated industry. She rose above the workplace harassment and became an entrepreneur, starting up her own business. Last week, she met with another man who rose above it all, the Honourable Kaycee Madu, Alberta's first African Black Minister. Terie plans to hang her painting when she buys her first home.
