Wood Water Rock combines various abstract images based on Colorado’s landscape with traditional techniques from the Renaissance. The panels show a variety of mountains, plains, geology and vegetation through subtle colors such as sandstone and pine green to emphasize the rich earth tones reflecting the state of Colorado. Materials such as rabbit skin glue, pure spirits of gum turpentine and a special varnish were used to give the paintings a glowing and luminescent effect. As many as 45 layers of oil films per painting were used on each of these eighteen wooden door panels. While each wooden panel serves as individual works of art, Ms. Bumiller created a collaborative piece by arranging them in random patterns on the white curved wall.
