The Grand Opening Launch event for Caesar’s spectacular VIP Banquet room, ‘Augustus-27’ was scheduled for two nights later.
I sent her some images and she emailed me right away with an approved choice. This was followed by a flurry of purchase orders and forms that the Casino requires.
Usually, any painting 6 x 4 feet or smaller, is simply loaded into my van and delivered to clients if they’re in my area.
But this painting measures 6 x 8 feet ! Way too huge for my van. Fortunately, my trainer and helpful friend, Ben Graham, came to my rescue with his new truck.
The painting was installed the next day after delivering it. The invitation to the VIP Launch Party was in my Inbox when I got back to the studio. I was pretty pumped.
- The Augustus-27 Room is amazing!!
- 30-foot high floor to ceiling windows
- 360 degrees of view
- breathtaking view of Canada (Windsor) & the US (Detroit) as far as the eye can see.
The Launch Party was fantastic! There was a definite buzz of electric excitement in the room!
Unfortunately, the lighting on my painting had a strong blue cast, which really washed out the colors. Oh, well. Things can’t always be perfect.
The Casino didn’t buy the painting, though. Instead, they’re leasing it for three months. They thoughtfully urged me to add a label off to the side of the painting so anyone interested could get in touch with me.
It’s a great honor and opportunity to have my work featured so prominently. Maybe someone with a large enough wall with fall in love with ‘Forces of Nature’ and want to take it home.
