Original painting reproduced and installed in the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Austin

Original painting reproduced and installed in the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Austin

In May of 2018 I was contacted with a proposal to have one of my paintings reproduced in giclee form and installed at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Austin.  I of course accepted the proposal and the painting was approved and installed in late summer of this year.  I do not know where the painting is located in the hotel, but I look forward to making the Hyatt part of my personal Austin hotel art treasure hunt sometime in 2019. 

The painting is titled "Magnolia" and was created in 2015.  The original is composed of acrylic, graphite, polymers, and oil pastel and is 48x36 inches on gallery wrap canvas.

Original mixed media painting commissioned by the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Austin

Original mixed media painting commissioned by the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Austin

Recently, I got word that an original painting commission was approved and will be installed at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin.  I am very humbled and grateful for the opportunity to create an original painting for such a magnificent and wonderful hotel.  This is the second commissioned project this year for an Austin hotel.  These projects are completely invigorating and rewarding for me in ways words just can't express.  As I start this painting today, I am reminded of my humble beginnings,...painting in my home back in Dallas fifteen years ago with not a care in the world, and no idea that one day I would be asked to create a painting for such a recognizable and distinguished hotel.

Seven original paintings reproduced and installed at the Austin Hilton Garden Inn Convention Center

I'm very excited to share the news that some of my original paintings were reproduced in giclee form and installed over the summer at the Hilton Garden Inn Convention Center in downtown Austin.  This is the first hotel to commission my work in my now hometown of ten years.   I haven't had a chance to see the seven pieces in person yet, but I very much look forward to visiting the hotel and I will take some pics and share in the near future.

Fourteen original paintings now available at The Fish Grill in Waxahachie, Tx

Fourteen original paintings now available at The Fish Grill in Waxahachie, Tx

I am excited and grateful to have been asked to display my work at The Fish Grill in downtown Waxahachie, Texas.  The Fish Grill is a wonderful new restaurant on the square just 30 minutes south of Dallas. Built around 1900, this fine old building served as the Ellis County Tax Office...now it is home to a fine/casual restaurant, offering seafood, steak, chicken and other delectable bites to the community.  Brass, marble, tall ceilings and giant windows, a mezzanine overlooking the courthouse, and amazing cuisine, all make for a wonderful experience at The Fish Grill.  The fourteen original works will be on display and for sale indefinitely.  I will post more pictures of the installation in the near future.

I was recently contacted by hip hop artist Kholumbo to create a painting for his album cover.  I thoroughly enjoyed working with him during the creative process.  He was very pleased with the final product, which in turn, I was fully satisfied and grateful for the opportunity.  His self produced EP is now on Soundcloud.com.  Here is the link to his music:

Original custom painting to be reproduced and installed at the Manhattan at Times Square Hotel

Original custom painting to be reproduced and installed at the Manhattan at Times Square Hotel

I'm quite humbled and honored to have been asked to create a custom original painting to be reproduced as a very large giclee and installed at the Manhattan at Times Square Hotel in New York City.  I have yet to visit NYC.  Along with the amazing melting pot of cultures, food, art, museums, architecture and history, I now have an even more special reason to visit.
