The Art of …

… Canada, by artist Carl Ray (1943-1978)

It’s Canada Day, a day we should collectively hold in shame for the crimes committed against the indigenous peoples of this country.

    Neat! I spent a bit of time looking at the picture and more things kept occurring to me. Nice pic.

    I don’t think I’ve heard of Carl Ray before. My loss, so thank you for pointing him out. There are some more images at the Bearclaw Gallery, but the one you selected looks to be the most interesting one to me.

    I think I’ve seen other work by this artist, probably because of Caine sharing it. This is stunning, and reminds me of her art style in some ways.

    Is a mourning celebration a thing? The news from Canada and the anniversary are both sad occasions. I miss Caine all the time, and I’m sure others here do too.
