Halifax Terminal

Along the Halifax Waterfront is an array of monumental architecture and equipment just right for painting and drawing. The contrast between the constructed environment and natural environment provides interest in terms of form and colour.
As a transfer point in a global journey grains arrive and depart by rail, road and ship.
The  massive grain elevators stand quietly in contrast to the rattle of the steel legged transfer conveyors moving cargo to and from ships tied to the wharf.
It is interesting that the giant forms can hold the farmers imaginations and work on the inside while at the same time holding the artists imaginations and work on the outside.
