My time in Colorado abounded in transitions. Though opportunity and wisdom lead me away from the Southwest, I wanted to preserve the memories of special nights and tell stories of remarkable personalities through the language of abstracted landscapes. Living in the Rockies, I explored the mountainous terrain, elevation and colors of Red Rock, the Continental Divide, Aspen, The Garden of the Gods etc. I saw these geological wonders as metaphors for the people, the incredible personalities in my life. This abstracted metaphor became the series, Colorado.
