Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Iritlny, Muy 26, 1972 IMF irtllBRIDGB HCPAIB 3 POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKAJO We just have witnessed one! of nature's miracles, the rich, brilliant and coloristic sym- phony entilled Spring and the Unfolding of the Leaves. Monday we see a light yellow- green fuzzing on the branches. A few clays later the world is green. Look up the avenue at the trees _ the tonal pattern is amazing! I like green leaves they contain chlorophyll. And how unusual for Lelh- bridge, the wind is blowing! A technicolor motion picture, the wind gently whipping the trees. I grab my oil paints and a big canvas, all stretched, slack the easel in the trunk and the kids in the back seat and beckon Hildegard to journey witli me to Earl's farm. How unusual, the wind is blowing at Earl's farm too. Great! Just right for wind paint- ing. How can I describe the scene? We have the sky, mostly blue. Across this restful infinity float clouds, white around the edges. They float gently at ninety miles an hour in the faint breeze. I set up the easel, tying it carefully to a couple of small boulders. What a lovely pastoral scene! There is Chief Mountain and bis associates, lined up like executives in the boardroom, and swirling around their crag- gy, wliite-topped peaks, are fantastic rings of steel-grey clouds, b'ke cigarette smoke at the editorial conference. Below the mountains we have strips of grey, then a stripe of pure green (someone's winter wheat is growing now a field of darker green and an- other strip of something with a golden haze of dandelions (get out the weed All around the gentle hills are covered with velvet greens or the soft, pale yellows of the stubble. Well, the easel is taking a buffeting but the anchor ropes arc holding fast. Now, we stand upwind, or downwind, depending on where the easel is, and squeeze a bit of paint in Ihc air. The wind catches it. H flies at the can- vas. What a beautiful effect! Now some vermilion, a touch of veridian. just a hint of ultra- marine blue I he wind takes the paint right from the tube and places it neatly on the creation. Zap! Modern art! So interest- ing, so varied, so vivid and so easy! Wind painting! Down with religious expressionism, down with non-objectivity, down with the whole darn kit and kaboodle of abstractions! Up with wind painting! After an hour of blowing in the wind, the painting is finish- ed. Beautiful! Oh, my goodness! What's happening? A violent gust of wind! Grab the canvas! We're airborne! The rope plays out- saved by a knot! Saved by a knot catching under the boulder! Well, here we are flying like a kite high over the fields. A bird's eye view. And down be- low. I hey're watching from the picture window. Gosh, it the rope breaks? What next? Well, I am happy to see Earl come nnuiing across the field. But waif, the worst is yet to come. He's going to let the kids fly me! It's enough to make a fellow give up art. Wind-blown dust and straw cover the canvas. It's ready for framing! LAST MINUTE CHANGES Humorist Don E. Behrens of Milk River makes some last- minute changes on his script, The Year Lethbridge Won the Grey Cup, to be staged Sat- urday Sunday and Monday nights in the Erie Rivers High School auditorium at Milk River Son Terry Behrens looks on.
