Late last year I recieved a call from an Interior Designer with The Johnson Studio here in Atlanta. She was looking for some custom artwork for the new interior of Brennan's Restaurant in Houston, Texas.
In 2008, a fire broke out in the restaurant during Hurricane Ike, engulfing the historic building. They have been under re-construction ever since, and you can see the progress that was made on their Flickr photo stream.
There were three parts to our collaboration. The first was a set of original paintings for the dining area. She had seen the Nest painting on-line, and wanted a second painting in the same style and size. I showed the progress of the painting recently on my blog.
In keeping with the Bird theme and the gorgeous color palette, we framed two large prints of my bird paintings and framed them in a subtle, elegant silver frame. Again, I love how the colors of the brick are mirrored in the birds.
Citrus colored nudes that were installed in the bathrooms. First of all...not many people say "I would like ten nudes, please. For a public space" I loved hearing that the owners wanted some elegant, lovely ladies in their restrooms!
The colors look fabulous together (yes...I used the word fabulous). What a gorgeous bathroom! There are also several pictures of the bathroom in-progress (before the art was installed) in their Flickr photos.
And Congratulations to Brennans on your gorgeous re-build and recent re-opening. I wish you many, many more years of success!
