Nora’s tribute to Colorado in mural form

Our very good friend and partner Nora Johnson recently completed a stunning scenic mural of the Colorado landscape, and we can’t wait to show it to you! The 8′ x 50′ mural was presented at the 2012 Denver Home Show, but was then donated to Brent’s Place, which is a non-profit home for families with children with cancer in Aurora, Colorado. Such a beautiful mural, and an even more beautiful gesture. Oh Nora, how do we love you? Let me count the ways…

Even more amazing? She painted it FROM MEMORY. Absolutely incredible.

I created these images from my memories of Colorado landscapes. I vacationed fourteen times in Colorado throughout the years, starting with my sixteenth summer, which I spent exploring amazing parks in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

The four sections of the mural took her a month to complete. Check out this neat time-lapse video of the painting being worked on:


You can also see a 360° view of the completed mural as it appeared at the 2012 Denver Home Show, which was conceived by Wynn Interior Design (which was the official interior designer for the Home Show. Not bad, not bad!). It wrapped around the entire booth of the Rocky Mountain Design Collective. Stunning!

Murals aren’t all Nora does, but damn, she does ‘em so well! Check out her site to look through her incredible portfolio.
