Desperate Housewives

For those who are unaware, ABC studios purchased a print of my painting, “Feathery Flower,” along with a license to allow its use on the set of their hit series “Desperate Housewives.” The purchase occurred during the summer of 2010 before the shooting began for season 7 and the painting ended up being placed to the left of the entrance of main character Bree Van de Kamp’s home above a hall table and on a green wall. The painting’s prominent placement at 4354 Wisteria Lane allows it to be seen from the character’s living room, kitchen, and staircase and has enabled it to appear in many commercials and episodes of the show. However, its glory has finally come to an end.

ABC Studios officially let the hit show come to its inevitable conclusion in May of 2012. If you missed seeing my painting during the course of the normal season, your only other options are to wait for syndication or to purchase seasons 7 and 8 on DVD. The diagram to the right will give you the clues necessary to find the painting if you choose to seek it out.

    Congratulations! .. what an achievement!… just wondering, have you noticed an increase of sales as a result of your print being on Desperate Housewives?

      Thank you Graham! I have definitely had an increase in sales because of “Desperate Housewives” but it is entirely due to self-promotion through blog posts, forums, and social media. Now, when people search for paintings and “desperate housewives,” my work is likely to appear in the results. I was pleasantly lucky to have had my work appear on the show and to have it be placed in such a prominent location on the set.

      Thank you Lucia! I have been having a fun time with the floral work. They are challenging for me so I have been painting a ton of them. Thanks for stopping by my new website to have a look. I completely rebuilt the site in November 2012 and it has really helped increase traffic. It is a continual work in progress though. I need to leave it alone and paint more! 😉
