Last August, I did a huge wordy painting of Robert Frost's The Path Not Taken. It is one of my favorite poems of all time and we loved having each drippy word hanging in our house, but I eventually sold the painting when we started the family room renovation.
Fast forward almost a year (!) and Robert Frost's poem has made another appearance in my artwork. I have been commissioned to do all the artwork for a dental office opening in Tulsa, Oklahoma. When figuring out exactly what all 18 pieces of art are going to look like and how they will fit together--we (the dentist, who is actually an old friend of mine, and I) decided to mix in some clean and contemporary quotes and words paired with large, modern paintings. In the operatories, I'll script out words like brush your teeth, floss, smile big, etc., but in the lobby and hallway--inspirational quotes were ordered up and I like to deliver. Hence Frost 2.0--this time just the last line of the poem on a large (30x40) canvas with lots of clean, white space to keep it professional mixed with some splattering to keep it contemporary.
Basically, I want one for our house.
P.s. Wasn't that the best season finale of the Bachelorette ever?
