The Lotus Installation–Can you take me high enough?!

This was a pretty intense installation for us.  Evan and our client’s father were the brave ones up on the scaffolding.   My role was to hand them the paintings (I only climbed to the first and second tiers) and to take photos.   (You can also see our Monarch painting in the living room in this photo!)


This may give you an idea of how high up Evan was when he put up the french cleat:


Whew!  First painting installed!  It took five of us to hoist this baby up in the air!  Our client commented that it seems like you have to work out and bit fit to be an artist–how true!

A view from the second floor.  It looks beautiful!

And now for the other side:  A view from the second floor, trying to decide on the spacing between them.


Up they went-they look so light and airy in the space!

The drips on the lily pads looked so perfect with the cables on the chandelier and the lights almost seem to mimic the petals of the lotuses!

What an exciting ride it is to be an artist!  It’s not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure.  But it’s incredibly rewarding!
