Iterations No. 2, 30 x 66 inches, installed outside the Ritz-Carlton Club Lake Tahoe member lounge
It’s always a highly desirable thing to get an installation photo of your artwork, even if that can sometimes take five years or more. In 2009, 3 of my works were acquired by the Ritz-Carlton Highlands in Lake Tahoe, California, thanks to Judy Hagler and Translations Gallery in Denver (sadly, no longer in business.) This particular piece, Iterations No. 2, represented the 2nd time I had made this work, because they liked the first one but it had already been sold. See the story here.
Lake Tahoe is not the most convenient place to get to from Denver, but I finally had a good opportunity to go there when a driving trip to San Francisco became a reality last week.
The Ritz has three of my works in all, but finding them on the property was surprisingly difficult. It’s a huge facility, and they do not have a comprehensive list of all the work installed there. I was there for a long time and searched all over the hotel and residence buildings, but I was only able to find two of the three, with a promise by the Director of Operations there to try to track down the 3rd one and send me a photo.
This is the other one I was able to locate, in the lobby of the residence building.
Horizon No. XI, 34 x 34 inches, installed in the lobby of the Ritz Carlton Highlands Lake Tahoe residence building.
It’s a beautiful, luxurious resort. Some day when I’m rich and famous, I’ll come back here for a ski vacation.
I also took the opportunity to gaze upon the magnificent turquoise waters of the lake itself. I definitely want to find a reason to come back here; it’s spectacular!
