When people joke that Saskatchewan is flat and that there is nothing to see I just shake my head. It’s not about the objects in the landscape, or even the trees or hills or rivers. It’s about the sky. It’s about seeing more of the sky than you see elsewhere. It’s about being able to forecast the weather half a day in advance just by scanning the horizon. It’s about that feeling that the earth is round because you see so far you can make out the curvature towards the edges of your periphery. And then there’s the sunset. The reds and oranges enhanced by the grain dust during harvest. Every sunset is similar, but they all have their distinct characteristics. Their own glow. Their own palette. That sense that it’s not real and I can’t believe anyone would paint something that would look that fake.
