The prairies layers: roots in the soil growing the grasses that wave under the blue skies and clouds.
“It is a great misfortune to be alone, my friends; and it must be believed that solitude can quickly destroy reason.” ― Jules Verne

A tribute to my husbands books about eastern Colorado. I image transferred iconic symbols from his novels onto this old tractor piece. You can learn more about his books by following the link below.
Planet Earth is getting beamed up, hopefully to save us from ourselves. You'll find this sculpture on N. Tejon St. in Colorado Springs.

The wide open prairie appeals to our wild sides, needing open space for a feeling of freedom.

Colorado Springs commissioned several small sculptures to place on N. Tejon St. in large planters. I made a mini version of one of the oldest buildings in CO Springs, the DeGraff Building. You'll find this small version out front of the real one, but this one had solar LED lights inside.
Jars of desiccated fruits displayed in beautifully oxidized steel. A shout out to the histories of food preservation.
Driving through the prairie I admire the landscape colors and lines.
