I recently finished a commission for interior designer, Sam Taylor. Sam’s client was opening a cafe in Colorado and needed large art to fill his walls. Since the cafe is part of a chain Sam wanted us to design artwork that could be reproduced in each of the cafes that would follow. Working with Sam I created a series of watercolors to develop the imagery for 6 different paintings. Our conversation was based on words from Sam and images from me. Our back and forth enabled us to complete the design of the 6 pieces before I ever started work on canvas.
When the paintings were completed we had 6 each 36” x 36” acrylic on canvas works. We then had a series of high resolution photographs taken and from that full sized reproductions. The originals will remain in the office of Sam’s client, and the reproductions can be made over and over again as each new cafe is opened.
