CEO Retirement Portrait: “What Winners Do”
This portrait was created live for the retirement dinner of a CEO in The Woodlands, Houston, Texas. He wanted to share the lessons of what winners do from three inspirational historical photographs he has on the walls of his office. These three images are reflected in the painting.
I start the painting with the reception scene as a jazz combo plays. Then I paint the three inspirational photos and the portrait of the honoree. The music playing in the replay video was selected by the honoree.
A framed fine art canvas print of the final artwork, including an Augmented Reality extension that shows the video you see above within the art, was presented to the honoree afterwards.
