May 21, 2016 Maligne Lake, Jasper National Park. For 15 years Sarah and I have travelled to Jasper National Park to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Rocky Mountains. The first year we hiked 9 kilometers up to the summit of Whistlers Mountain. Some years later our families got together for a family reunion inside Whistlers camp ground. Years ago Sarah's grandparents travelled to Jasper and took a boat cruise out to Spirit Island on Maligne Lake. The first time I took that same boat cruise was in 1979. This year Sarah and I married May 19 and took that same cruise during our honeymoon. When we arrived to the island I got out my sketch pad to sketch while Sarah scrawled the initials of her grandparent’s names Marvin and Betty onto the sand of the beach.

Artist, Active Citizen Doug Brinkman, 61
I first expressed creativity on my parents' 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 me with a steady stream of paper and pencils with which to draw. In high school I took courses in commercial art and printing, and learned how to develop photos and produce short video features. I learned to fly and hiked the West Coast Trail 3 times.

I came to Edmonton in 1980 to continue a career as a newspaper printer, first for the Edmonton Sun and finally with the Edmonton Journal
I became involved with community theatre, painting sets and volunteering as public relations director for Walterdale Playhouse Theatre. In 2007 I became a civil information activist and began publishing citizen news stories on YouTube. Unemployed and forced into early retirement I keep myself busy as a full time artist and continue to publish news stories on YouTube freely.

& Group of Seven
It was in 1924 when members of Canada’s Group of Seven expanded their artistic subject matter 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 to Jasper National Park.​ 90 years later, in the early spring of 2014, I spent my evenings sketch studying Lawren Harris and A.Y.Jackson inside the Art Gallery of Alberta, where thier works were on display. Later that year, in the spring and fall,  I set out with my backpack, canvas and paints to paint in the same area of Maligne Lake as they did 90 years earlier. 1924 Maligne Lake YouTube
