It’s November 10, 2017 and I am currently in India. Yes, I said India! The wonderful collector in India has brought me to his country to conceptualize a number of paintings for his home in Lucknow for commissioned works. Those who follow my blog here perhaps will remember my posts about a new collector in India who purchased several paintings from me earlier this year.
This patron of the arts has flown me over to do a number of commissions for his amazing home in Lucknow India. I am analyzing and coordinating with the interior decorator to get the perfect size for the various rooms and large staircase between floors!
This is a challenge but it is also a wonderful opportunity to have my artwork shown in yet another country and a country where abstract art is not as prevalent a style used in India. We have been discussing what he wants in each room and I am taking notes of size and color so when I return to Los Angeles I can create the artwork that will be a monument to the way it was created from start to finish!
