Clean and very paintable technology

For some time I have been fascinated with innovative ‘clean’ technology, and especially how it’s being implemented in Canada. The Pincher Creek area shown in this painting is a particularly windy part of Alberta, the province widely portrayed as the source of the world’s dirtiest oil.

I plan to paint other examples of clean and very paintable technology in the planning stages or already up and running in Canada.  As far as I know, we have nothing as fantastic as the incinerator I painted during a DanubeRiver cruise in 2011,but I’m pretty sure there are lots of beautiful innovations to paint out there.
