“I was enthralled with Topher’s series of works inspired by the National Parks and approached him about a commission. We discussed his work, the pieces that resonated the most with me, and ultimately decided to create an original work based on a very special place to me in the Rockies of Colorado and in the style of The Parks. Topher reviewed a number of photographs and worked hard to ensure he understood my connection to the place, down to my favorite time of year and even time of day. He created a beautiful piece of original work that is the centerpiece of my living room remodel. In addition to being a very talented artist, he is a great professional. He listens and communicates effectively and works quickly but with all his heart. I greatly enjoyed the process and absolutely love the piece.”
Woods Lake commission by Topher Straus
Sea and Mist commission by Topher Straus
I am the very happy and proud owner of a beautiful work of art by Topher Straus. I have admired his work and followed him on Facebook and Instagram. He posted a fabulous photo he took of the Pacific Ocean flying into Kauai, and I thought WOW! I contacted Topher and asked if he would be willing to create a work of art for me. It was wonderful and great fun working with him to create “Sea and Mist” for a very particular spot in my entry where I wanted to hang a slice of the ocean. All the shades of blue are vibrant on the metal canvas. Thank you, Topher.
