I’ve been obsessed with big city skylines since I was kid, staring out the wide windows of my family’s caravan as we drove all over the country. The skyscrapers of Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and New York represented power, life and creativity. Because of their iconic status, urban skylines tend to be over-represented in photography and artwork. That doesn’t mean there aren’t more ways to interpret them, so I created this stencil of my hometown, Denver. Not exactly a legendary skyline, but it’s got a couple of unique structures (not to mention the Rocky Mountains) that make it worth a tribute.

Giving the piece texture was important, so I used five separate stencils to give detail to the mountains and buildings. The colors are ivory white on dark gray. The painting is on a 24" x 44" piece of medium density fiberboard, with a sawtooth hanger on the back.

* Denverites, this isn’t meant to be a literal image of the skyline. I got the cash register building, Republic Plaza and the new Four Seasons, then made up the rest.
