South Rim, abstract quadtych





I just learned that this quadtych of mine has been purchased by Kaiser Permanente for their new medical office building in Parker, CO. I used to work for Kaiser for many years and, when an employee, I was not eligible to have my art purchased by the company. Now that I am retired from Kaiser, I can finally have my work in their permanent collection.

Kaiser purchases original art to decorate the public areas of their buildings. If beautiful art can inspire and comfort patients, and perhaps take their mind off their troubles for a moment. it is well worth the expense.

This quadtych is an abstracted view of the Grand Canyon looking straight down at the Colorado River. The composition is heavily textured and flows from one painting to the next.

Congrats! I've always loved Kaiser. I've always wanted to sell my work to Kaiser.

Carol, Congratulations! and I really love this one...what are the sizes of each piece?

Carol Nelson said...

Thanks Sheila and Saundra. I wish I knew more about getting into corporate collections. Kaiser found me through my local artist group website.
Each painting in this quadtych is 12x12. They look good in a square format too, so there is some flexibility in the hanging presentation.

Hi Carol, great achivement, congratulations!
Very interesting to know what your inspiration was, it totaly changes my perspective on these pieces, and adds up to the pleasure of contemplating them...

It's interesting for ME to know that YOU find it interesting to know about the inspiration for the painting. I guess that's one of the benefits of blogging about your art. I did these four small ones after I did a very large version (48x48) called Grand Canyon.

Carol!

I love the warm colors in these! Just like the Colorado Rockies!

How neat that the company you used to work for purchased these paintings!

The visiting patients will have four lovely works of art to look at thanks to you!
