A reference guide for some of the most popular flowers found in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The verse chosen for this poster was inspired by Saint John Paul II's 1993 visit to Denver, Colorado for Word Youth Day. That year, he chose John 10:10 as the theme for the event. "I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly." The flowers are original illustrations by Jana Zuniga, using ink and watercolor.
Printed on 100 lb cream paper, measuring 11 x 14 inches.
Note from the artist:
I moved to Colorado in 2019, with a budding love for all things florals. I had just worked at a floral boutique the year prior, and the passion grew from there. After years of hiking different trails all over Colorado with my husband, I have been increasingly curious about the names of the wild blooms spotted at such high altitude. This past summer, my husband gifted me a Rocky Mountain Wildflower reference guide and it sparked a new joy inside of me! Immediately I started using it to identify flowers all summer, and started painting them too. Many of those flowers are included in this poster.
I hope these flowers and the ones you find in the most unexpected places and moments, remind you of God's abundant love for you, his generosity in giving us such delightful gifts so freely, and the fullness of life he has promised us. //Jana Marie
