Visiting Steve Tyson’s Art Studio

This past weekend was the 11th Annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour and one of their featured artists was none other than my good client, and great friend, Steve Tyson. I visited his studio on Saturday to show my support — and to stake my claim on the amazing teal painting he created for me last year, which was also on display.

I had such a good time admiring all the unique and vibrant paintings that were showcased. I enjoyed meeting and chatting with other friends of Steve that were also there to support him. It was so interesting to listen to Steve talk with the many art enthusiasts that visited his studio for the event about his style and the different mediums he used.

At the end of my visit, Steve and I discussed a book we both recently read, Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon, which briefly talks about unity in one’s work. Kleon suggests we “don’t worry about unity from piece to piece — what unifies all of your work is the fact that you made it.” And I definitely think, that no matter how Steve’s art has evolved and changed throughout the years, you can surely see his own mark in each of his paintings!

So if you’re looking for a beautiful new piece of art, be sure to visit www.stevetysonart.com — but don’t forget, the teal one is mine!

Through the Waterfall – A Painting by Steve Tyson

Last fall, I received an incredible surprise. My very talented friend, Steve Tyson, offered to create a custom, one-of-a-kind painting for me! I could hardly wait to see what his creativity conjured up. He asked for my input, and my only direction to him was that I liked teal and perhaps red as an accent color. I have never owned custom art, so I didn’t know what to expect. However, having seen other beautiful masterpieces that Steve has painted, I was confident that I would love mine. And I was right!

I received my painting in January, and a few months later I am still captivated by it. Just the other day, I noticed how right before sunset, the sunlight bathes over its surface reflecting a greenish blue hue all around the room. It’s lovely! It hangs on a wall right outside my home office, so I get to enjoy it daily.

I also had the pleasure of giving it a name. I titled it “Through the Waterfall” because it reminds me of a waterfall over a cave. Whether you’re staring at it from the outside, or from the inside of the cave, you can look through the pouring streams and see a glimmer of what’s on the other side.

If you don’t know who Steve Tyson is, then please visit his website at www.stevetysonart.com as soon as you finish this article! He creates unique, vibrant and colorful abstract paintings. You can see some of his amazing work on his site or you can commission him to create one for you too!

Steve also gifted me these awesome greeting cards with the painting on them!
