This year we are proud to present our local artist rainbarrel, painted by Deborah Dohrmann. Join our silent auction on facebook to bid to win this beautiful work of art that is sure to draw attention to your at-home water conservation efforts with style! Deb jumped at the chance to work on the rain barrel and feels that the lovely paisley design mimics the color and movement of water. Deb has been a professional artist for 20 years, but only recently relocated to Colorado to be closer to her kids. Her talent lies in window art and advertising, mural painting, and restoration.
