"New Moon" was created as part of a yearlong project called "Veins of Steel." It was a project that took a deeper look at the Southern Colorado mining industry. The artist made drawings on location of mining sites to depict the current state of the mines and the altered landscapes that they left behind. New Moon is a painting based on a drawing done on location of the steel mill. A Colorado Creative Industries Grant and an exhibition were awarded for the project. Image extends around the edges of the piece.
