New Neutral Abstract

Gold, Bronze, Ivory Abstract painting

Gold, Bronze, Ivory Abstract painting

I recently completed a new abstract painting inspired by my waterscape series.  I am a huge fan of neutral color palettes in my own personal decorating so I was anxious to create a similar abstract work that would look great hanging on my own walls.  I experimented with cream, taupe, bright white, and both gold and bronze metallic paints before applying the super high gloss top coats.  I would love to see this painting find a home in a contemporary beach house with lots of earthy textured sisal, woven seagrass, dark wood details, and bright white walls.

One aspect I love with these paintings, that does not come across by photographing them unfortunately, is that they reflect so much light given the high gloss finish, as well as the metallic paints, that they look different from every angle or every hour of the day depending on what natural light may fall upon the surface.

Next up I hope to create a blindingly bright white and gold piece much larger than this 36×24 work.  Stay posted!

TC Millwork Recent Renovation

Longbay Beach House Powder Room

TC Millwork has had a remarkably busy last year.  Early in 2012 our millworking division was hard at work on this incredible renovation.  A beautiful house located on Longbay Beach had seen many changes over the course of it’s history but new owners had a striking contemporary vision for it’s future.  While we refinished many of the doors and windows to coordinate with the overall look, much of the interiors were completely gutted and re-envisioned, which gave us the opportunity to create several custom woodworks.  These varied from clean lined combination open shelf and cabinet door vanities to imaginative designer furnishings like the oversize sofa swings hung from the octagon shaped sitting room and the live edge walnut slab kitchen island.

Commissioned and New Waterscape Paintings

Commissioned Waterscape Abstract Painting No.4 36″ x 50″ x 2.5″ SOLD

Last month I finalized several paintings within my Waterscape Series.  Above and below are the largest piece which was commissioned by a client overseas.  Because I use 100% plywood frames manufactured at TC Millwork, my paintings are nearly indestructible.  Plywood frames, versus canvas, allows me to layer and texture to my hearts content while I work and guarantees these beautiful artworks will endure several lifetimes for their owners.  Clients shipping abroad can be reassured their art will arrive unscathed.

Photographing these paintings is a real challenge as the hyper glossy topcoat which is designed to give the appearance that the painting is forever immersed in water, catches light reflections from every angle.  These pieces truly must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.  The three below may be viewed at Framing Grace Gallery in the Regent Village.

Beach Tree Wedding Arch

On February 2nd TC Millwork was contracted to set this beautiful beach tree arch for Sandra and Jon’s wedding.  This is a stylish and affordable option for couples that desire an organic, beachy look, more unique than your typical beach ceremony set-up.  It can be set as a two post, or a four post, and decorated with small conch shells (as shown here), flowers, vines, ribbon, lanterns, or whatever you wish!  This is a picture perfect place to use your imagination!  Please contact me for pricing.  To see more of Sandra and Jons gorgeous day, please see brilliant’s blog.

TC Millwork featured in Coastal Living

While rummaging through some magazine stacks I came across this January-February 2009 issue of Coastal Living.  This original Blue Mountain Villa featured just so happened to be a client of TC Millworks.

Several custom pieces were built including a beautiful table made of rare zebrawood, and the entertainment center pictured below with woven fiber inserts within the paneling.

I’m terribly late with sharing this spread but better late than never!
