Background and inspiration

This was a large (9’ x 3’) piece that was commissioned for a client’s living room space. My client really wanted to get the colour right to match some of the accents they had in their house. The piece was designed to induce feelings of power, sound, and force that you’d feel at the base of a waterfall. The colours and flow of the piece really allow you to transport and feel the coolness and power of the water as it cascades down a cliff face. You can almost hear the rush and thunder of the water as it slams into the pool below. This was not a “passive” piece of art, and I absolutely loved working with my client to get the colour and flow correct!
