Architectural Art | Welcome To Colorado

I was commissioned to create a variety of components of the Colorado Welcome Centers within the architecture of Michael Brendle, FAIA. I made three of these Colorado landscapes as the entry art for the Welcome Centers in Fruita, Burlington, and Dinosaur. I also designed and created the signage as part of the whole composition. I used a vertical 60-degree parallelogram as a recurrent visual theme in the entry painting, in the regional division of my 8'x12' map of the state, and as flags to those regions on the brochure racks. The paintings include the expected mountains, but I also included hay bales to symbolize the agriculture, which is so important to the state. The paintings are acrylic on plywood. They measure 96"x47". The second image shows the Burlington Welcome Center; the circular painting above the desk is also mine. Read more Read less
