Dempsey Park





4"X6" Watercolour & pencil on paper



There is a certain irony to the fact that throughout this continent there are many parks and "natural" spaces that owe their very existence to the hydro corridors. Hydro being the common term here for electricity (another irony) because of its source in Niagara Falls and other water driven plants(hydro-electric power). Dempsey Park is beside the Welland Canal and although it is being encroached upon by new housing developments, there is a part of it that will always be safe because of these massive power lines that thread their way across the country.

We are still getting very unsettled weather and that results in some magnificent skies, constantly changing and always interesting.
