The Saga of the Dallas Fort Worth Skyline Triptych
My most recent project is the result of a commission by Delta Airlines for a 24 foot wide by 6 foot high mural of Dallas and Fort Worth combined.
I had done a similar combination for KTXD TV in 2013, but theirs was 208″ wide by around 96″ high. It could not be repurposed to the new dimensions of 288″ x 73″ – so… Back to the drawing board, so to speak.
I could re-use only a couple of the original elements in the original skyline, which meant going out to re-shoot lots of buildings and add some images from recent shoots of both cities. The most complicated elements were the Calatrava bridge (cutting it out of the background took the better part of an entire day) and Reunion Tower. Reunion Tower is a composite of two images. First, I shot it from the south side on a parking garage at sunset so I could get the detail of the column itself and the reflective blue-green of the outer walls. Then I shot the entire structure at night from the levee with a 400mm lens to get a tight high detail shot + the lights in all their glory. Then. And here’s the fun part. I pasted every single light into place over the sunset exposure after cutting the tower out of the sky. That took a very long time, as you might imagine. It’s also pretty tedious work. I love the result, though. Another of my creations that you can never find in nature.
In this incarnation of the DFW Skyline, I added in the most recent Supermoon from 2016. It was the largest Supermoon in decades and the detail of it was superior to the original. I had wanted to include one in the version for KTXD, but London Broadcasting preferred it with the ghosted Texas flag and no moon.
The final image looks like this:
Now, since this composition is so wide and short, it becomes a serious problem to produce, handle, transport and install. As a result, the version I am marketing is a triptych, available in three sizes only. These are Limited Editions, signed and numbered.
A 6′ wide set of 3 panels limited edition of 15 (on aluminum) for $1500
A 12′ wide set of 3 panels limited edition of 15 (on aluminum) for $3250
A 4′ wide single sheet limited edition of 25 (on aluminum) with the legend below it for $995
If you are interested in either one, send me a message or pick up the phone and call me at
The triptych version is rearranged slightly to allow it to be divided:
The single panel 48″ version with legend:
Signed / numbered Limited Edition “Texas Star” on rolled canvas.
Unmounted, unframed $150
20″ x 31″ on 24″ wide canvas
Today I had to clean the nozzles on the big printer & figured I might as well run off a print while I had it up and running.
Normally a print of this size would sell for much more.
This is raw rolled canvas. You can stretch it, do a gallery wrap, mount and frame it, use hangar bars, or just grab 4 pushpins and stick it to the wall.
This image is featured on page 43 of Texas As I See It.
We will be at Southlake’s Oktoberfest this weekend. Stop by and say Hi if you have time. It will be fun. We will be in booths 66 & 67 facing north toward the Town Hall – right next to Die Festhalle in the center of the exhibit area.
We will have our usual double booth with lots of large Limited Edition prints, 16×20 prints and some new images. A large selection of note cards will be on hand as well.
We are almost out of books, so this is your last opportunity in 2014 to pick up a signed / personalized copy of Texas As I See It.
We will be launching a crowdfunding program for the reprint shortly. This will be a good way to pick up the 2nd printing at a discount, but delivery will be early next year.
( I did not create the map, so I am not responsible for typos… 😉
Two new additions to our online portfolio come from the newest asset in the Dallas skyline. The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava. Controversial and beautiful, the new gateway to Dallas is a stunning achievement in architecture.
Both images are available in a variety of sizes and finishes. Shimmering canvas or luxurious luster, these images of the bridge and stunning in any size. But the larger they are produced, the more dramatic the effect.
Named for the gateway to the Emerald City that it re-creates in this hand-crafted image of the Calatrava Bridge:

Calatrava Reunion – a dramatic view of Reunion Tower framed by the support cables of the Calatrava Bridge:

Based on requests from some of our booth visitors at the Deep Ellum Arts Festival over the weekend, I have crafted some new additions to my Tr?Z collection which can be found on my Vivid Pixelz website.
The Tr?Z collection is comprised of vividly manipulated (predominantly) Winter trees, twisted into a dimensionally different view. Many of these images look alien, most are vivid (some are monochromatic) and all look very different from any native growth you’ve ever seen before.
All images are available from 16×20 matted prints to massive stretched canvases or luster-finish framed prints. All finished prints (canvas or framed) are signed and numbered Limited Editions of 100. The largest prints are nine feet wide!
