Casebeer Install


Now that Kim Casebeer’s Show is winding down, I’ve let some of the collectors take their works home–at least those who couldn’t wait any longer.  Hung this piece in, of all places, a kitchen.  Yeah, the wall’s a bit small, the supply duct is in the way, and the dinner table is in front of the painting.  But the couple love the piece here, and that’s all that matters. 

I ain’t no frou-frou designer.  I’m an art consultant, and don’t give a damn about matching paintings to wall colors or sofas.  I bring my artists’ passion to my clients, and let that speak for itself.  The clients always respond passionately.  Bottom line, that’s what this business is about.  Have sold 12 works thus far.

  1. Hi:

    I am so happy about Kim’s sales. Her work just seems to get that much better all of the time.

    For the ‘matching paintings to a sofa’, I attended the IAPS convention in Albuquerque, NM a few weeks ago, and I noticed his gracious wife (I can’t recall her name right now, but she was really sweet), but I got a chuckle from the back of her t-shirt that said something like ‘fine art doesn’t need to match your sofa or walls’.

  2. I don’t know, you might want to talk to your clients about rerouting the ductwork and repainting the wall. ;-)

    Seriously, good on you for pushing the art! Though with such great work, I how can they resist?

  3. Yeah, I know the wall really is the wrong color, and the duct in the wrong place, but they just moved in. Since they don’t care at this stage, I advised they just save the money for their kids’ college. Seems a wiser investment.

  4. Hi:

    I just reread my original comment, I meant that I went to a demonstration by the very great artist Doug Dawson, and his wife was wearing that funny shirt.

    My hubbie is a contractor, and I know it isn’t too difficult to place the duct work in a different spot. That looks like it was really a weird spot in the first place, but oh well.
