Wings Over Springs
Colorado Springs is a fantastic place to visit or live. It has a great atmosphere, and I tried to capture that in this piece. The wings represent the planes that fly over associated with the military. Under the wings are Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, and the Olympic rings. Colorado Springs features many training centers for Olympic athletes. The strong winds are represented above the mountain, stone outcropping, and rings.
