 From the first Gathering mural that i painted in 2016. This detail is of Bud Osborn,the renown Eastside poet, activist/visionary who initiated safe injection sites in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. After a long battle, he crossed the river, but his spirit incisive, poignant poetry lives on. We collaborated on two books together: Oppenheimer Park and Signs of the Times. The latter is still available from myself or Anvil Press. Subsequently, we added several more diptychs and triptychs to this series of commemorative portraits.
