Buddha Tree In The Mist—In A Client’s Home

I met a wonderful couple, Tim and Lena, in Laos, he was working for the UN at UXO-Lao on unexploded ordnance (UXO) demining projects and she was working at COPE. They really loved my Buddha Tree in the Mist panorama. So, here are some shots of it hanging in their home in Oslo. The print is actually hanging straight on the wall, but after some champagne and Tim’s self-admittedly questionable skills with a camera… thank you both!

Buddha Tree In The Mist—Installed

This is the type of client email I love to get:

All we can say is wow!!!  -Vicki

It’s a very satisfying feeling seeing my work hang in someone’s home—especially when the owner goes all the way and paints the wall and hangs a light fixture solely for my print.

In Situ

It maybe be hard to tell, but this isn’t a small print… it is 22″ tall x 44″ wide. With the frame, it’s roughly 31″ x 55″ and quite heavy. The framer did an amazing job—I had not considered a black mat with a white bevel, but I quite like it. The organic pattern on the frame is a natural extension of the tree itself. A good frame job really emphasizes the artwork and also makes it look better—all without drawing attention to itself. This is a really well thought out example of that.

The tools are discussed in the video, but I thought I’d also put the list here.
