Making of a Commission for the Marriott Hotel Group

May is for Marriott...

I'm busy in the studio this month with a custom mixed media landscape painting for the Marriott hotel group.

Art consultants selected a piece of artwork from my portfolio that worked well with the interior design components of the hotel guestrooms. The artwork they selected, Telescope Peak, had sold in my 2011 solo show at SLOMA.

Upon completion this piece will be photographed to scale up to the final reproduction image size of 24 x 60". There will be one framed image in each of the 130 guestrooms at this brand new facility in California opening later this year.

Adding final elements to the piece.

I am working on a new, larger variation of Telescope Peak for the Marriott on a 12 x 36" panel with color and texture matching as close to the original as possible.

Figuring out the composition of the textured papers.

This new contemporary California desert landscape is finished and titled: Gold Basin. I look forward to seeing the installation later this year.
