It has been a serendipitous series of events that led up to the project’s birth. There are so many parallels to this story, it will probably sound too good to be true if I share it all here. Let’s just say everything happens at exactly the moment it is meant to, and to be clear about what you want in your life.
One day I thought to myself “I want to put my artwork in a hotel some day, maybe this year, that would be awesome.” And then, I kid you not, 2 days later a woman liked the facebook page, inquired about the creative sessions, and then showed up that weekend for the session. Turns out she loves art and is also an artist, and also in charge of commissioning the artwork for the lobby of a newly renovated hotel. And asked if I’d be interested in the project. Ummm…YES!
The concept is heart-centered, experience, meaningful, bold, eye-catching, engaging. Decor is is bright and bold, ruby red and deep royal blue, beige. Dark brown, light browns, beige, deep pink, light pink. Asian-tropical. Entertainment and service.
Whoohoo! Guam Reef Hotel Art Project, phase 1, complete! This Friday was the last day of their Chamorro Month festivities and the revealing of the finished artworks. It was so exciting to have the curtains veiled back from the paintings! I also gave a simple painting demo, and I had some help from a couple super cute munchkins. The Chamorro dancers gave several performances, and I just loved their costumes! They looked like beautiful Chamorrita goddesses.
We had all kinds of Chamorro treats to try, and the guests gave all kinds of awesome feedback. I am just super grateful for this whole experience, and the doors it has opened. It seems every time I create my “biggest piece ever” they just keep growing and I want to create bigger and bigger pieces!
