This week the Colorado Coalition of Artists or COCOA has sponsored an art show called WOW Fort Collins. Everything in this art show had to use the initials wow, so I created a very abstract painting, which I used as a reference Michelle Vice's photo of a water and woodland scene. This painting I called War Over Water, mainly due to the problems we are having here to avoid the ruin of one of our most beautiful assets in Northern Colorado, the Cache La Poudre River. There is a plan afoot to build a reservoir on the Poudre north of Fort Collins which will really affect the flow of the river going through town. This painting is a reflection on the water of the battle we must fight to avoid losing our beautiful Poudre.
