perfectly technicolor in portland

"the juggler"

I recently was commissioned to create one of my most playful mobiles, the juggler, for a client in Portland, OR.

Living, as I do, in Bend, OR, I'm always excited when I'm lucky enough to share my artwork with other Oregonians.

However, whenever I create this particular mobile, I'm always just a wee bit concerned about how the client will respond to the colors it dishes up. Why?

Because they are super flippin' ridiculously...

When two of three paint colors start with the word SHOCK, you better believe there's going to be some POW Factor going on ... and that can be a real surprise.

Belton Molotow's Shock Blue and Shock Orange team up with Cadmium Yellow to create a grab-you-by-the-eyes, slap-you-upside-the-head and spin-your-brain-around color combination.

That is to say the original colors of this mobile definitely aren't for everybody and it's rare the grown-up room that can hold it's own with such look-at-me-ness.

Until now...

My client sent photos of the installed mobile and, well, simply put: I want to live in their house! It is just that COOL! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, but I LOVE every little (and big) element in the rooms. Such creativity and character and playfulness combined with such crazy awesome stylings.

Love it and am honored to be spinning in such a space.

Technicolor Yea!
