This is how Benjamin Burnham describes his final scene choice for the beautiful mural in Dr. Burnham’s new Thornton, Colorado, dental office. The mural depicts the San Juan Upper Valley, south of the Wolf Creek pass, just after sunrise. It was a great choice. The connotations of renewal and rebirth reinforces the passion the team at Burnham Oral Surgery has for helping patients discover renewed health and beauty in their smiles.
Developing the studies and sketches for the mural was the first time Benjamin Burnham had worked with acrylics and he spent a great deal of time testing the materials and methods to be used on the actual, full-sized mural. Clearly the medium was a natural choice for the artist. The mural welcomes patients as they enter the doors, celebrating the gift of nature Coloradans enjoy and filling the office with warmth and light. The valley was also an inspiration for Burnham Oral Surgery’s new logo.
“The valley was a key feature on many family outings through Southern Colorado. I find it truly spectacular, and I plan to paint it through the seasons,” noted Benjamin Burnham.
We welcome you to view the new mural and tour our fantastic new office.
