I'm excited to finally get to announce that I have some paintings used in the set design for season 2 of The Morning Show on AppleTV!
I wanted to share them here so you can see them at a closer look since I'm sure they will just be colorful blurs in the background of the show that most likely, only I will notice. But definitely let me know if you spot them! They are all beautiful abstract oil paintings, and I love the ones they picked from my spring collection of work earlier this year.
If I'm really honest with myself, as a child, my dream goal was to do paintings for movies. I would pause movies and sketch the characters during the 2 minutes the pause button lasted at the time before it would auto-unpause. And funny enough, my son now also does the same on his own accord. But as I got older, so much became digitized, so I sort of boxed the dream up. I'm realizing now I wasn't thinking outside the box enough when I was at a university and saw the sifts of the industry.
One of my college professors was a set design artist for films, and I was under the impression that all the artwork was done in house. (And maybe it was at the time). I never imagined some might be outsourced, but I'm so grateful that it sometimes is, and that some of my work was picked out to include.
Anyway, it's a good reminder to keep showing up to do the work I want to do and not lose track of my goals in the process when I see hurdles in my way. Hopefully, it's a good reminder for us all in that way. I'm really excited to share these 4 pieces with you, and this bit of news.
And if you connected with one of these pieces in some way and were sad it got snagged so quickly earlier this year, please reach out about commissioning a piece and we can use these as the inspiration for a custom piece just for you.
You can see a list of FAQ's here and learn more about my process, but feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions!
