“Jen, we want to commission you to do a painting for us...but we don’t have any wall space left.”
It was opening night of a 10-week art show in Scottsdale, AZ where I met Todd and Deborah Ulan. They had walked around the show, looking at all of the artwork, and had circled back to my studio.
See, I was used to hearing those words from my collectors, but her next sentence caught me by surprise...
“Have you ever hung art on a ceiling?”
Trying not to look too surprised, I replied that I hadn’t, but that she could be the first!
“Well, what’s the biggest you could do?"
I knew that she had found the right artist!
...And that was the beginning of my FIRST ceiling commission.
