Note from the artist about this piece:
My girlfriend and I were exploring the Rocky Mountain foothills, a region that has a long history of mining, hoping to add images to my ongoing project I call "Remnants of Hope". Abandoned mining buildings certainly fall into this category! We had wandered around a few sites earlier in the day, but none of them really "spoke" to me. We had been driving for a couple of hours through woods, having given up hope of coming across anything interesting, when this scene appeared through a gap in the trees. Perhaps you could say that the tumbledown livestock shelter is a remnant of hope, but I wasn't reacting to that. The vastness of the landscape, that tiny crumbling structure. Likely, it's nothing unusual to a Westerner, but we New Englanders rarely experience vistas like this. At the risk of sounding corny, it made me aware of how small we are in the grand scheme of things.
