The Wiers Plaza Commissioned Paintings
On November 11th, I installed two big ass canvases measuring 78" wide by 120" tall. I have to tell you, I was nervous, excited and a little anxious on that day. I was commissioned to create these abstract canvas works by Art + Artisans out of Austin, Texas for the owners of the building. What was so great was on install day the owner was on site. It is always such an honor to have your work chosen for a public space. He told me the story about how they went through about 2000 slides of artwork and they gravitated to my work. The paintings started with an idea based on two other abstract paintings that I created for a collectors foyer in Florida titled, Soul Sisters. I worked closely with the project manager and we discussed size options & pricing to start. Fortunatley, I was able to watch the Weirs Plaza being built and was able to visit the building lobby where the paintings now live. This was a huge help to get the feel and vibe of the 24 story luxury office building. If you are ever in Dallas, please stop by the new Weirs Plaza building on the corner of Knox and Travis St in the trendy Knox/Henderon area. Just one building down from the new Restoration Hardware store.
