For a long time I've been on a quest to find my perfect landscape. This is one of the reason I love going on new hikes. Will I find the places that I've imagined? Before I got to live in Vermont and in Colorado, I would day dream of wandering through my ideal green hills that roll back into the distance and evolve into magnificent mountain peaks veiled by a perfect, huge bluebird sky. Living in Vermont, I fell in love with the vivid and lively Green Mountains the state is know for. Then when I moved to Colorado, the sky was incomparable to anywhere else. And the high peaks were so striking and impressive that I couldn't take my eyes of them. I combined all of this in this piece and hope it evokes the feelings of love and wonder that I have for our beautiful planet.



Below are a few process shots that show this mosaic coming to life.
