Invited to submit work for the new headquarters of Reactive Innovations of Westford, MA, I was honored to have one original pastel painting and seven prints - of pastels and textile paintings - selected for the new spaces.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the company's new offices on October 22, 2008. Company President Michael C. Kimble, Ph.D., waits at center, above, to help his daughter cut the ribbon. Martha Russell of AXA Advisors is standing to Mike's left.
Mike chose the original pastel, Mount Washington in Snow, as well as two prints in the Clouds Series - Blue Sunset Clouds and Russet Sunset Clouds - for his personal executive offices.
Mike liked the fact that I had invented the textile techniques used in the originals of this Adirondack Series, saying it echoed his company's innovative vision. Shown here are Fallen Tree and the Sunset on Silver Lake diptych he chose for the reception area.
He was also aligned with my mission of reverence for the natural world and choosing sustainable business and life practices.
