A while back, a local interior designer commissioned art from me for one of their projects.
They were completely redecorating the Carrollton Bank in downtown Clayton, MO. They did a great job by the way. As they got closer to the end of the project they needed some contemporary abstract paintings for their conference room that had windows facing the busy street that is famous for hosting the annual St. Louis Art Fair. I made two custom paintings for them that were twins that flanked the sides of the room.
This commissioned painting had to mesh well with their existing design, as well has enhance the small wall space in the conference room. Red was a primary color in their design, so I used that as an anchor color and worked off of it with to produce this modern abstract painting titled “Ochre Scape 77”.
