Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Mrjy 26, 1972 IMF inilBRlDGB HCPAID 3 POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKAR1) We have one nf miracles, Ihc rich, hrillianl nral colorislic sym- phony enlillcrt Sprint! and Ilic Unfolding of Die Monday we sec a liglil yellow- green fuxzinrr on the branches. A few clays later the world is green. Look up the avenue at the trees the tonal patlcrn is amazing! 1 like green leaves they contain chlorophyll. And how unusual for Lelh- hridge, the wind is Mowing! A technicolor motion picture, the wind gently whipping the trees. I grab my nil paints and a big canvas, all slrctchcd, stack the easel in the trunk nncl the kidr- in the back seat and beckon Hildcgard to journey with 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 resttul infinity float clouds, white around the edges. They float gently at ninety mile1; an hour in the faint breeze. I set up the easel, tying it carefully to a couple of small boulders. Whal a lovely pastoral scene! There is Chief Mountain and his associates, lined up like executives in Ihe boardroom, and swirling around Ihcir crag- gy, wliitc-topped peaks, are fantastic rings of steel-grey clouds, like 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 Iw.c of dandelions out the weed All around the gentle bills arc covered with velvet greens or the soft, pale yellows of the stubble. Well, flic easel is taking a buffeting but the anchor ropes arc holding fasl. Now, we stand upwind, or downwind, depending on where the easel is, and squeeze a bit of paint in the air. The wind catches it. 11 Hies at the can- vas. What a beautiful effect! Now some vermilion, a touch of vcridian. just a hint of ultra- marine blue Ihe wind lakes the paint right from Die 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 wilh wind painting! After an hour of blowing in the wind. Ihc painting is finish- ed. Beautiful! Oh, my goodness! What's happening? A violent gust of wind! Grab the canvas! We've airborne! The rope plays 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. Ihcy're watching the picture window. Gosh, it the rope breaks? What next? Well, I am happy to see Earl come ninriing 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 Humorisl Don E.
