About a year ago I was invited to submit work to a national wholesale art dealer, and after several weeks, some of my paintings were scanned and made available as prints to clients in the design, hospitality and movie industries. It's been the biggest kick, a surprise each time to see these pop up on the internet! Some of these prints turn up photographed in showrooms, at interior design shows in Dallas, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and I believe New York as well.
The images in this post are the showroom of a prominent interior designer in the northeast U.S. (And yes, the designer is prominent, can say that ! ) I'd love to visit one of these showrooms at some point. In the image above, two 'Cabriole' prints are featured in this living room vignette, with color variations and the prints in neutral metallic float frames. This is my favorite framing treatment , it enhances and complements the art yet is minimal.
Below, one of the same 'Cabriole' prints, shown with predominating white and gray with the smaller areas of rose and pink. No metallic in this print. It fits the color palette of the room really well! I want to have something like the fabric in the cushions for my own home.
Seeing these opens up possibilities in my mind on variations in color palettes, sizes and framing. I am still very in touch with my roots and connections to the design world. I love to paint and I'm at the same time thrilled to see how my art is selected and adapted to these settings and color palettes.
