Canvas Floor Cloths In Tampa Bay's Finest Homes
You may have spotted artist Skip Dyrda's artistry underfoot in some of Florida's finest residences. Dyrda will mimic existing rugs and accents, but thanks to his trompe d'oeil techniques, his pieces are much more than solid color with a border. Painted on sturdy artist's canvas with acrylics, Dyrda's durable floorcloths--which range in price from a few hundred dollars to five figures--are created with an eye to clients' interests and decorating style. On a floorcloth commissioned by a cat lover, for example, tiny cat paws and a collar appear to lie on the tile; one for a kitchen includes a Florida cookbook opened to a page with one of Dyrda's mother's recipes on it.
