Recently I had a client who was looking for a way to better integrate an outdoor painting into the area behind their bar. Using colors pulled from the upholstery on their patio furniture, I first glazed the wall. I then added a few areas that looked like breakaways which matched adjacent brick work. The canvas painting was secured with screws into the stucco so that it wouldn’t blow away. Careful to match the colors, I extended select details from the painting onto the wall.
I thought it turned out to be a great yet simple way to maximize a small purchased painting for minimal cost and effort. Best of all, it wasn’t something you’d see everyday.
I would love to hear what you think?
