It is funny the way things come and go. The way things flow from parts of your life to another. Busy times and slow times — people that don’t look your way and then other times when the world is glaring at you. I remember hearing the name Accenture. I knew it was a fancy consulting firm —way up in the sky offices helping out other big companies make more money and do better at their given tasks— but what does that even mean? It is funny how things roll back around.
I recently finished a new colorful mural for Accenture, to be featured in their new state-of-the-art Innovation Hub at Tech Square in midtown Atlanta. I loved painting where I had a grand view of west midtown and far beyond. We spotted a range of hills and with a little help from a map app figured out they were just our side of Rome, Georgia. I could see Kennesaw Mountain and all of downtown. I watched the weather ebb and flow, the rain come and go and the late summer breezes blow. I had lunch in a sack. I stored my coffee in a wrinkly cup behind some boxes in the corner. I rolled my red cart down the hall to the freight elevator.
I don’t know if I will ever go to the Accenture offices again, but I left enough fun and happiness to last a while with the new painting. Thanks to those who asked me to create art for you. Thanks to the guy who checked my ID every time I showed up to paint. I enjoyed the opportunity to push through my ideas and create new work for others.
see you soon,
