OR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 01, 2008 – Award-winning artist, Randall J. Peterson has completed his first drawing of a California bed and breakfast, the Albert Shafsky House in Placerville, CA. While he has been commissioned a number of times in the midwest this is his first pointillism piece for an inn located out West.
His artwork has been featured in "Lighthouse Digest Magazine", "Good Old Boat Magazine" and the book "Majestic Lights - The Apostle Islands and Lighthouses" by Jim Merkel. He uses stippling or pointillism, in the artistic tradition of the French artist Georges Pierre Seurat to express the beauty of the historic structures he is so fond of working on. Each drawing takes Peterson 25-50 hours to complete.

The owners of the Albert Shafsky House Bed and Breakfast in Placerville met Peterson at the Professional Association of Innkeepers International conference in March and fell in love with his work and style of drawing.

After commissioning the artist and sending numerous photos of the California bed and breakfast, it was up to Randall to get busy. In just a few weeks the art was in the mail! The result is simply stunning and the innkeepers are thrilled to be able to use his beautiful drawing on everything from notecards, to book marks as a nice reminder to their guests of their time in Placerville at the Albert Shafsky House B&B.
