Five 30″x40″ unframed watercolors on 300 lb paper for the new east-side University Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin representing Wisconsin ecosystems in the area.
Images representing Wisconsin landscapes. Integration into new building with multiple display areas. Not situation specifics.
In answer for a call for proposals for artworks to enhance a new hospital under construction, I sent a submission that described the size, medium, and content of the work I was proposing, featuring local landscape. I already have a piece in the collection of University Health in the West-side hospital, so the selection team is familiar with my work. After a studio visit by the coordinator the commission was approved. I had six months to produce the five paintings,
An additional three existing paintings from my inventory were purchased along with the five I was commissioned to do.
