We did a fun job in the middle of the night for about a week, in one of our Favorite Restaurants in Frisco, called "Boatyard American Grill"...a perfect location and rich base color to enhance the metallics on the Relief.
We got through the Holidays, completing a relief project with some new fantastic clients, who were open to creative and fun sculpted relief in their newly purchased home in the mountains.
Stay tuned for some really cool upcoming projects..... Happy New Year!!!
Happy Fall in the High Country!!!!
We are home from the Western Design Conference in Jackson, Wy where we made a splash with our sculpted relief wall sample!!
What a gorgeous place and a beautiful conference!!
We are excited to now be in our new representative location in Frisco, Colorado!! We placed a 4 panel wall sample and the Buffalo piece ,(seen on the home page), in their high end show room, so people can see, touch and purchase the work in a retail location.
They have 4 talented designers ready to serve all your decorating and designing needs, and the owners Heather Jarski and her son Andy Jarski are welcoming and informative!
The Parade of Homes!!
This weekend starts the annual Summit County Parade of Homes event in Summit County. This is our annual fundraising event for The Summit Foundation.
This year there are 15 spectacular homes showcasing the best in Summit County... in building and remodeling.
We at Norling Wakeman Studios are showcasing a variety of our relief, faux, decorative painting and mural artwork in a gorgeous remodeled home in Keystone... located at 197 Wild Irishman Road. Come by and say hello!!
Now get out there and enjoy this gorgeous weather, Fall colors, and what little time we have left, before the Snow flies!!!! :-)
Hey All !!!! We had a very eventful Spring and Summer....from large relief jobs in South Dakota, a 5 day workshop in the studio with artists from around the country, to a really special guest, Leaf, a 3rd year Student from Hong Kong, here to intern for 3 weeks, learning our Relief technique and doing a little mural painting.
Joe gave a presentation and hung his cool lighted Art pieces in a Public Venue, that people will enjoy until the end of August.
Here are some pictures of the latest activities.....The 5 Women are Students from our Sculpted Relief class, checking out Joe's Show.
Roger of "House of Signs" in Frisco, CO entered the Piece we did last year in the International competition in Signs of the Times magazine. The art includes, Steel fabrication, clay epoxy sculpting, sign board construction and hand painting. Pretty cool!! We are excited to receive this international recognition!
Spring Sculpture Relief Workshop is happening June 8-12 here in my studio. Room for 7 students only! We will work on a large wall as well as sample boards to bring home. Cost of the class for the 5 days is $1250.00 For more info: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just in time for the Holidays...and, with the help of Jill O'Connor, we sculpted a Family room wall in Silverthorne, CO...adding a touch of metallics and a sculpted bird.
They even re-did the lighting to enhance the relief even more. Thanks to MWA Home Essentials Design Center in Silverthorne.
Happy Holidays everyone and Keep Creating!!!!!
Hey all! So.....we have even a little busy lately! It happens more intensely, every year......adding Wall Art that family and friends can enjoy while gathering together for the Holidays. Below are a couple photos of a large curved wall with a darker base paint that really sets off the Sculpted Relief.
What a great time last weekend !! We had a Show with Oil Painter, Barrett Edwards, and Jill Creager along with all the other amazing artisans and vendors in the Home Essentials Design Center. Thanks also to MWA Design, Mark Adolph and Reese.
It was a blast !
This little guy was the true star !!
Thanks to Barrett, who saved it's life, it is free of being trapped in the Design Center, and is currently flying around the mountains!
Here in her hand she had been feeding it, after it had landed in her hair at the end of the day, begging for a ride out of the store. We are thrilled it lived !
This is the awesome Art Piece Joe sold Friday night at the Reception.
I had a lot of great comments on this piece as well.
