My favorite Koehler works are the pieces that make me think of the Southwest. His Harmonic Oscillation series brings to mind the layers of mountains in graduated colors you see in the desert. His southwest blues and oranges are awe inspiring - these are the colors in our sunrises and sunsets that sometimes really do bring tears to my eyes.
One version of his website is still active - be sure to take a look at the large number of his works on it!
Happy Creating! Deborah
