"WHAT I DID THIS SUMMER"
I was so fortunate to be able to travel to the Galapagos Islands this summer with my family. We joined a tour for Biology teachers organized by my sister, and in my eyes it was the trip of a lifetime! I loved learning about the geology of the volcanic islands and seeing the animals and plants that have adapted to unique ecosystems. My experiences in Galapagos and the Ecuador mainland were a real treat for this long-ago biology major, and will surely inspire my artistic expression for years to come!
NEXT: MY TRANSFORMER CABINET MURAL!
The transformer cabinet assigned to me this summer is located near the intersection of Pine Street and Poudre Street, northeast of Old Town Fort Collins.
Using the street names as my inspiration, I created a design featuring oversized, colorful pine cones, with aerial views of a river (the Cache La Poudre) winding among them and throughout the composition. Here's a photo of the scale model I constructed for final approval.
My cabinet is about halfway between Bas Bleu Theatre
(401 Pine Street) and Teaching Tree Early Childhood Learning Center (424 Pine Street); next to Legacy Senior Residence (413 Linden Street). I'll get started as soon as I get the official Notice to Proceed from the City of Fort Collins. :)
Once I'm finished painting the pinecone transformer cabinet, I will head over to the Global Village Museum
to paint their updated village icon on their courtyard walls.
There may be another transformer cabinet in my future this fall, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.
Thanks for your continued interest and support!
