Enlightenment at the Institution by 

For a number of years, I worked with inmates at a correctional facility in one of the most beautiful mountain towns in the USA. The prison was a dreary place surrounded by incredible views, which created a situation of cognitive dissonance. Pen and marker drawing.

    This is gorgeous Joanne, what a magnificent sky. love it.

  • It’s nearly impossible to do justice to the Colorado sunset but perhaps an abstract approach gives something of the ambiance. Thanks, Mel!

    I love this. A while ago I did something similar to one of my skies, but I must admit yours has more impact.

  • I like yours too, the way you use shapes especially.

    really spectacular sky…..and I can see why the prison would be dissonant in comparison……

  • Colorado mountain skies are often breathtaking beautiful with explosive colors at sunset. At least the inmates had that to cheer them.
