Frond Memories – Evolution of an Art, Panel Start to Finish

I was delighted to recently be chosen to paint an alumninum panel as part of a community public art project. Ivanhoe Village (Orlando) Art Panels is a public art project and my “tiles,” six composite photographs that I coined Frond Memories, were reinterpreted as a painted “tiles” and completed in November 2021.

The original design, which did go through some changes when adapted for paint and scale.

The site:

After visiting the panel and reviewing the dimensions (4ft wide x 9ft tall) I decided to start by creating stensils. I traced and cut on one day and then took the cut outs to the site the next day and traced them on to the panel with 6B drawing pencils. I got two tiles completely stenciled out. One more will be stenciled and the rest completed freehand.

A few stencils:

Beginning to transfer the designs. Follow the evolution. More posts to come!

Next, it was time to paint. This was a family affair, with my dog and my Mom (a painter!) lending a hand.

Voila – it’s done! Thanks to Ivanhoe Villlage for the opportunity.
