Hand-painted Flourish Risers
Posted on January 31 2023
I've always wanted to design artwork that could be placed on the risers of stairs. My thought was always to create tiles that could be applied professionally. Or panels cut to length that could be attached and removed easily. Something that could change with the seasons.
I've pondered how to get this done for years now.
And in that time no risers were being decorated with my artwork.
That is until a long time collector reached out and said:
"I want you to hand-paint the Flourish design on my stairs."
It's something I've never done before.
So naturally I jump at the chance.
After discussing some colorways and going over some design choices, we ended up with just a fluent, intuitive Flourish design that included florals inspired by the flowers in one of the paintings they purchased from me years ago.
Each step is different from the other.
It changes and grows as you climb the stairs.
It's as impactful as a mural but not exactly where you would normally think a mural could be. This location pulls different interactions with it as it's not just one flat surface.
And it's the first thing you see when you walk in the house.
I'm so honored for the Yaker family to have yet another piece of mine grace their beautiful home. I love that their kids will be able to experience this as they grow through out the years.
