Enlarged version of a smaller abstract floral for a 14″ fireplace. 6′ x 5′ commissioned oil painting, blue green
THE PAINTING Inspired by a smaller oil painting, the homeowner met with me via zoom to create an oil painting for the fourteen foot high by seven foot wide white marble fireplace.
We developed a plan for the painting sized to fit the space exactly, with the help of scaled mockups and photographs. With the oversize walnut entertainment center on the flanking wall, we chose to deepen the colors of the commissioned painting (compared to the inspiration piece) to make sure the palette fit the room with sufficient weight.
Finished painting, measuring 72" x 60" is heavily textured with layers of glazes and palette knife impasto oil paint.
