The art consultant contacted me to have me email her several past high resolution images of previous artworks for her presentation. Her client settled on an oil painting similar to my previous abstract landscape painting titled Seasonal Whisper. The clients commission was to include highlighted features, slight color changes and site specific size requirements.
As per the art consultant the goal of the piece was to have a realistic, painterly, nature scene that can also be interpreted as a soft abstract with depth to draw in the viewer while creating a calm and meditative atmosphere for a clinical space.
Clear communication between artist and art consultant was involved in this project. The materials for this original oil painting had to comprise of archival museum-quality canvas and highest quality oil paint.
Lutheran General owns another Tracy Lynn Pristas archival oil painting. A commission that was also in conjunction with LBD Fine Art Chicago, IL titled Settled Season 48h x 60w completed in 2009. The client wanted this oil to have a different feeling than the other painting. My craft begins by quieting my mind with meditation and traveling deep within myself, each painting I create is infused with Reiki healing energy. As a certified Reiki healer and yoga instructor for over twenty years my creations are an ideal fit for healthcare.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
