Along the Poudre River

Description

This project was inspired by our Front Range and the surrounding Natural Areas along the Poudre Trail and Kingfisher Ponds. I felt the scale and length of the work required a large linear and graphic design with vibrant colors.

The planting of native sunflowers to help rehabilitate our Natural Areas inspired the foreground. Shawna wanted to provide a novel element in addition to painting that would create interest and movement. The chain link fence led to the idea of hanging the blue acrylic circles to represent a sparkling river.
