Windows of Opportunity
43" x 61" ©2004
When I first arrived in Calgary in 1980 from a small mountain village in Bavaria, I was fascinated by the tall buildings and shiny windows. To this day I view these as windows filled with opportunities and promises for those that are willing to take the extra step. This large 3-D hanging is my tribute to my chosen hometown. This was one of two pieces to represent Alberta at the National Art Centre in Ottawa, Canada to commemorate our Centennial in 2005.
