There’s A Story To This Print…

I donated this print to the OHSU Cancer Treatment Center in Beaverton where I had  treatment the second time. It was a year-long ordeal in that room. I could have gotten treatment out in the main lobby with the other people, but I had had that major back surgery right beforehand, and was wiped out. So I would hobble into this private room, fall over on the bed and get treatment for two-hours EVERY DAY for two-weeks, then two off, then on again – ad infinitum.

A year after finishing treatment there I had finished my art series. This was one of my favorite pieces. So I brought in print number 1 and donated it to the room there. All the nurses were so happy. I had been telling them for over a year that I was going to bring in a piece of my artwork so that they could rename the room from “The Multnomah Falls” room (I think that was the name) to “The Cliff Travis” room.

It sits there today on the wall as a reminder to anyone who suffered like I did – that there is still hope even in the darkest hours of struggling. We brought the baby to the treatment center so many times – she napped there with me so often – that they knew her really well at the end of my treatment year… and they missed seeing her a great deal. They essentially watched her grow up for a year. And she was the only baby that ever came in the entire time that we were there.

I donated Print Number 1 of this art piece to the OHSU Beaverton Cancer Center where I received treatment for a year.  It is located in a private room where had most of my chemo after my major back surgery.  The room has unofficially been renamed "The Cliff Travis Room"

The Stand – Reloaded

The Stand - Reloaded

The latest in “The Celestial Bodies” Series. The astronaut embraces Mercury. There’s almost a religious connotation here, huh?  It’s been a long time since I’ve made a new piece.  However – it was time and I’ve always wanted to rework this drawing to fit within the celestial series that I’ve been working on over the last few years.  Enjoy!  :-)

The three best options for phone covers

I did a bunch of testing on the phone cover website.  Here are the three best options.  You can either have engraved (like what my previous post shows), or embossed – meaning that the image is raised from the back of the phone case.  Check it out…

My Newest Piece

One of my customers loved the Alvin Ailey piece (shown below) but wanted it in orange to match their wall color.  Several iterations and conversations later I had something that they liked.  I’m now doing something similar with a set of 3 for another excited customer.  Pretty cool huh?

In other news – Had another art show.  This time it was a the gallery in The Elizabeth Lofts (in the Pearl District).  Showing was for a month, but during a time when we were moving so I didn’t get a chance to really sell it.  Showing is still up until THIS NEXT SUNDAY, however if you want to drop by to see my collection.  Viewings at this point are arranged by calling Diane Kruger at 503 504-9330.
