This weekend just past, I had the pleasure of seeing some of my work framed and ready for hanging at a clients house.
In March of this year, I was in Canberra for the Balloon Spectacular. While there, I was walking around the Jerrabomberra Creek, which has a nice little pond with a waterfall. There had been some recent rain and there was a small flow of water cascading down.
This was causing some nice frothing and bubbles to form. The current swirled them around and created some nice texture. I shot this and edited it on my iPad into a high contrasting black and white.
My clients asked me if I could recolour the image to match the colors in some of their existing art and size it to suit a large space overlooking their entry stairwell. They were looking for more blue and green tones. I played around with 3 images taken on the same day and came up with this:
Each image was then printed on canvas which was then stretched and mounted on floating frames.
Working with my clients to get the colors right and ensuring we created the vision they had in their heads was highly satisfying. Seeing the look on their faces and hearing the excitement in their voices when we video called after they arrived was something I’ll cherish. I have to say, they do look amazing!
I’m currently exploring ideas with a local business to do something similar for their space. It’s a creative challenge that I really enjoy and would love to do more of.
