I completed hanging 7 paintings in the bank yesterday. The photos below just give you an idea of how they are placed throughout the main floor. Actually, I’m working on 4 new pastels that I hope to take in and substitute for 4 I just put up. The new ones are brighter and larger and will show up better. I have to say, I’m excited when I see my work up on a wall. Particularly in a location like this where the paintings will be seen by the general public, rather than someone visiting a gallery….. Not that I would turn down a chance to hang in a gallery!
The people working in the bank were looking forward to seeing new work and they say that their customers notice right away and talk about what they like, etc. Since this is a commercial bank, they have a local customer base that comes in often. It will be interesting to hear any comments. But, once again, I believe the reception to the newer work will be even more positive. I should be able to get the exchange done next week. We’ll see.
