This piece was created to have the same elements of the Colorado Flag, using natural elements. It incorporates a native cutthroat trout jumping out of the water which represents the “C”, with snow covered trees and mountains as the white stripe. Most importantly, this pictures shows a direct connection of the drain water to the pristine streams of our great state!

In 1994, Mario was offered an out of state scholarship for his artwork, but he opted to remain close to home and attend local college. He has taken classes in fine art, digital art/mixed media and web design. When not busy designing logos or painting pictures, you can find him spending time with his daughters or camping in the beautiful Colorado mountains.
