A. R. ! meant: "Artists' Revenge", said humourously during this era.
Karen Taylors' evbatik, which she gave to me a long time ago, was so saucily the epitome of Lanark Arts (and of 'our life and times - ha!') that I could not resist recording the actual batik, in case it just got too faded and dusty. (A the top left, one may see a yellow thumbtack, since the batik and R lived together, on my kitchen wall. ) The R was a china piece, kept since my name starts with an R. I collected 'Yes Canada' and Canada flag buttons, along with a daisy pin, Remembrance day poppies, and a stick-on kiss from "Mississippi River Daze" Festival, because I felt that the subject (as depicted, within the batik) (and, as so much extraneous beeswax, as projected (right off the wall) by hacks-hell!") deserved both the cheers, as well as "Ar" !
(Karen Taylor is a fine artist and film-maker in Balderson, ON.)
