HILTON HOTEL . Orlando, Florida

90" high by 150" wide by 3"d
Oil with palette knife on gallery wrapped canvas
Sides are sliver leaf

"I was commisisoned to paint this painting for a new Hilton Hotel in Orlando, Florida.  It is the largest piece I have painted and was quite a challenge since it is 7.5 feet high and I am 5'4" tall. It is also 12.5 feet wide.  I had a low scaffold platform built 3 feet high, 3 feet deep and 14 feet wide so that I could use a rolling cart with drawers that held my paint and had my palette on top.  I could walk the width of the painting and roll my cart along with me.  My only fear was that I would forget and back up to take a look.  If I had to do it over I would build the platform deeper and add a railing.  Challenging but fun.
