In Living Color

In Living Color
In Living Color

The complex palate of the human spirit has always been inspired by the colors of our world. The hues and shades of our dreams, lusts, sorrows, and despairs create the colorful tapestry upon which our stories are written, all against the kaleidoscopic backdrop of the natural world.

These masterful pieces tell a story in living color as they lead us over and through their rainbow, with an inevitable end into a pot of gold. Take a listen. Hear the colors. How do they inspire you today?
