wood piles
as deep as 
where the snow 
would normally be  

there were
white rabbits
like sitting ducks
in a green landscape

Heat Wave

Colour Vision

Daylight differentially reflected as colours by 
metals and chemically dyed oxide particles. 
These "pigments" are suspended in 
a mixture of linseed oil with
 turpentine and damar varnish 
( both derived from coniferous trees ) 
The relationship between viscosity and gravity 
becomes evident as
 the "oil colour" is absorbed into the 
translucent surface of white pine board. 
The background is  
"stained" western red cedar.

greetings from the Arts and Science Lab office

It's "spring break" and we have been walking the neighbourhood
with the petition and dog.
We've been getting an enthusiastic response to our proposal
i.e. close to 90% of the people we speak to sign the petition and
a number of people we''ve met have signed on to help.
A neighbour pointed out a house at Stevenson and Alice Streets
NW corner of the site and said that when they dug
some holes in the driveway they struck oil.
