A pension from this company allows me to eat and buy art supplies. It wasn't always clean and easy work however I have many fond memories of the many wonderful people who I worked with. I painted this quickly and I am pretty pleased with it. I am not sure weather my paintings are better than ever or if my perception of them has changed. Either way it feels great.

The Good the Bad and the Ugly
Today was another great day to paint (aren't they all). The Monday painters were at La Salle Marina in Burlington. All my friends elected to paint the many sailboats in the marina however I chose to look across the bay to the steel companies. More than a few passers by asked how I could make the ugliness of Stelco look so warm and inviting. It is simple really. I am inspired by the fact that these companies, now much reduced in stature, built the city of Hamilton and also by the fact that they may be ugly polluters but they have worked hard to clean up their acts.
