Wahatoya

Artist

Jennifer de Groot

From:

Pueblo, CO

Wahatoya is an indigenous term meaning Double Mountain. The Wahatoya are two prominent mountains that lie due south of Pueblo, in Cuchara, Colorado. When the sun rises on the plains of Pueblo County, first light plays across the easter faces of the mountains, lighting them up with hues of crimson, rose, and gold. The western sides of both mountains remain in shadow. I created this design to convey the joy and love and I feel for these mountains during sunrise. It took me 8 and 16 colors to complete this mural.
