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

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.
