“Colorado is one of the fastest growing states in the country. As people move from all over to enjoy the benefits of having both the delights of urban life and wilderness, the views are changing fast. It’s getting harder to find a mountainous view not framed by the angular lines of human development. In Light Born in Spring, the striking Hallett Peak juts out above Estes Park’s Dream Lake. The hints of buildings depicted in the painting are only a murky dream as the immediate area is still undeveloped as of 2022 – a vision that I hope remains unrealized. This piece is a meditation on the changing landscapes of modern Colorado as the human footprint reaches farther and farther into the Rocky Mountains, and a gentle suggestion to keep some places wild.”
