Many of my paintings are commissioned by clients, often as a gift or to commemorate a special occasion or just for the admiration of a favorite spot. Whether you are commissioning a large or small painting, from concept to completion, both the client and artist contribute to the creative process to bring an idea to reality as a unique original work of art. This is the key to owning a piece that you, your organiztion or your family will value into the future.

It’s a Collaboration

You and I will work together to find a photographic image to be used as the subject for your painting. A client’s own photographs can be used as subject matter but more often than not the comimsison process begins with my visit to the client’s chosen site to take photographs and talk about what it is that interests you visually about the place and your connection to it. I will then present the client with a variety of possible photographs to use for the “working image”. We review them together and make the final choice of subject.

  1. THE ART OF STEVEN GORDON • Napa Valley artist Steven Gordon works out of his studio in the town of Napa creating fine arts oil paintings, commissions, pastel drawings and fine arts limited edition giclee prints based on the California landscape scenes of wine country as well as from the inspiration he receives during his travels. The awesome beauty of Napa Valley wine country is the primary muse for Steven Gordon's ephemeral artwork but more often than not is a stepping off point for the more contemplative contemporary realism which he creates. Although realistic, the extensive consideration of the abstract elements of design, composition, color and form are an important part of the artist's thought process for creating his oil and pastel paintings, drawings and sketches. For 16 years Steven owned and operated The Gordon Gallery in Yountville, CA in the heart of the Napa Valley vineyards in the premier wine growing region of California. The gallery exhibited the artist's fine arts soft chalk pastels, oil pastels, watercolors, oil paintings, drawings, and giclee prints. The combined fine arts gallery and studio space allowed visitors to view works in progress and discuss the art with the artist. Steven has exhibited his work in many galleries across the country. His paintings and drawings and commissions are displayed in many Napa and Sonoma wineries as well as in numerous corporate and private collections across the country. If your travels bring you to Napa Valley, please contact Steven for a visit to his studio in the Old Town part of Napa. The studio is located in the downtown just a few blocks from all of the excellent fine dining, wine tasting and shopping activities in Napa town.
