Maitland Smith commissioned me to paint one of their feature entrance walls for the Spring High Point Furniture Market. Coral colored cherry blossoms bloom on cascading branches from the ceiling. The wall was first painted with Modern Masters “Smoke”.
You can see here some of the details and brushstrokes that loosely define each blossom. Bits of black pop the blossom off the dark “Smoke” background. Touches of bronze gold and white create highlights and bring the space together to include the moldings and bronze mirror.
