My piece Breakfast in the Hotel showed
at Studio Vogue in December. It's based
on a delicious breakfast Steven and I had
in our room at the Quebec City Hilton
Hotel -- so it can also be called
Petit-déjeuner à l'hôtel and is now visiting
Chris Chan with Ellen Liew. Both are superb
at printing and graphic design.
Last week on a snowy night Chris and Steven
installed the work. My thanks to Chris for
showing the work in his very busy business, and
for taking the time to stay late to hang it. I shot
these photos to document the process. I think they
give you a good idea of how big the final work is when it's all
together. I felt incredibly happy and proud
to see it there.

Chris measures so he and Steven can hang
the upper right quarter.

Why? The painting cannot lie completely flat because a strip of
trim on the wall that knocks out the bottom edge of the lower paintings.
But we are happy. It looks great, and Steven has
driven by the shop a few times every day to see it in place.
If you're interested in purchasing the work please write me at
the sympatico email address at the top of the page beside my photo.
Have a getting-the-work-out-to-the-work-world day.
