It is always highly complimentary when I am commissioned to paint a piece for folks who love my art. Working with designers and clients to come up with a piece for a special place in their home or business is always an complex challenge. Colors, subject matter, composition and space all play into the success of the piece.
This is a painting I recently finished for a Park City client. The process began when they visited my home studio/gallery. The clients selected a few paintings they liked and I brought them to their home to see how they would look in their space. “Full Tilt” was selected as the best for composition and color but was too small for their entrance hall. We determined the size and orientation of the commissioned painting by hanging cardboard mock ups of different sizes to see what would look best. The clients liked certain aspects of the application and effects in Full Tilt and wanted more of these effects in their painting. I altered the composition of the original piece to work in a vertical format and started painting! Varnished and framed, I hung the finished piece this morning!
Many thanks to all my patrons and followers! I wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year in 2019! Remember, you can see much of my work at the new Summit Gallery in the new Kimball on Main building and also in Oohs and Aahs Interior Design on Kearns Boulevard, both in wonderful, snowy Park City!
