Summer’s End: My Favorite “Weekend in the “Hamptons”

I always get nostalgic when summer comes to a end. The summer of 2013 was filled with so many beautiful and inspiring events, places and people. If I had to choose one, my favorite was the WIPA event held at Terranea Resort on a cliff overlooking the ocean in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Designed in a “Hamptons Americana” theme by Archive Rentals and coordinated by Janel Events, it was fresh and beautiful at every angle.

The event was produced for wedding and event professionals to be inspired by a unique design that can translate to any event. It gave me the opportunity to create textured artwork that complemented the overall design, while giving guests a keepsake of the day as decor for their home or office.

I created 26 mixed-media paintings on canvas used as table decor at the reception, on the food stations and ‘sweetheart table’ that were inspired by the ‘Hamptons Americana’ theme, the lanterns throughout, with a romantic spin – on the last of the 56 layers I used quotes from the movie ‘Pride and Prejudice’ (the Keira Knightley version). My goal was accent the decor while providing a unique and memorable gift for guests.

I saved one painting to donate at auction to support the local charity – Wish Upon A Wedding – Southern California Chapter. I you love the large 36″X24″ green, red and blue one that is pictured at the ‘sweetheart table’ with the half-heart – or if you know someone who would love it as a gift, attend this year’s Blissful Wishes Ball.

Thank you Jen O’Sullivan for the spectacular photography…
