Tatem Ranch Commission
This commission was done to be hung in an interior space between the living and dining areas of their home. It measures 3 feet wide by 5 feet tall and weighs about 80 pounds. The size and weight made it impossible for me to hold it up to view light through the image so I was working without the benefit of transmitted light. They requested that it depict their property - favorite tree, pond, washed out areas, and native Texas wildflowers. The middle portion of the sky is actually clear, not grey as it appears. The grey is actually trees showing through the glass when we took the photos outside.
