Colorado Color


 Colorado Color, Mixed Media/Fiber, 46″ w x 42″ l

There are many places that I have explored when hiking on the many beautiful trails within 50 miles of Denver. My friends and I have hiked Castlewood Canyon several times.   I originally was going to title this piece, Sky, Rocks, Water but decided that the bold color interpretation speaks of the many Colorado colors. There is always Colorado blue sky, but in addition the reflection on the gorgeous rock faces that make up the canyon are often subtly made up of many different colors. The flowing water deep in the canyon also reflects the sky and green trees.

I decided to go very abstract in this piece. I emphasized the colors in the canyon walls in much brighter hues. The fabric was used to show the shapes of vertical and horizontal rock formations. I used shades of blue to interpret the flowing river.  I used both silk and cotton fabric to interpret my vision.
