On October 1st I saw the completion of a five-month project with Mercy Hospital Willard.

The hospital has recently relocated to a new facility in Willard.

On the roof of the hospital across from the patient rooms there is a gray wall that surrounds the heating and air conditioning units.  The hospital contacted me about creating something to cover the wall that would be more pleasing for the patients and staff to view from their rooms.

Here is the gray wall from the roof level next to the patient rooms.

My painting, an abstract landscape called Summer in the Firelands, 2013-14, was chosen as the image to cover the wall.

On a cold, gray and windy Saturday, with the guidance of Matthew Ramsey and help from Alec Casto, we installed Summertime in the Firelands.

Matt guided the process of stretching the canvas across five frames.

It was truly a team effort installing this art work.

We had a brief appearance from the sun that lifted our spirits and pushed us to complete the installation in one Saturday.

I also want to thank Debbie at billboardsetcinc for all of her help in the planning and printing process of this project.

When spring returns to our area I plan to re-photograph the installation.  I am very happy with the project and glad Mercy Hospital Willard likes the work.  Each panel is 4′ high by 23′ wide, and there are 5 panels.  It was quite an accomplishment.  My largest commission to date!  I could not have done this without the help of many friends!  Thanks so much!

This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment.

Painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas.

Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color.

How great is this?  Given the opportunity most kids would love to spread stickers everywhere!

The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room.

The installation is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12, at Queensland Gallery of Modern Art. http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2012/01/yayoi-kusama-obiliteration-room/
