“I’m gonna drop the Gugg in front of the Tetons, and live paint the eclipse at 9,095′ in Jackson Hole.” Wait, what?

Yes, the 9th painting in my 20-year-series traded in 5th avenue for a ski resort…  and friend, it was glorious!

Borbay To Live Paint Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole Eclipse Viewing Party

Borbay to Live Paint The 2017 Eclipse at Four Seasons Jackson Hole

TETON VILLAGE, WY — AUGUST 21, 2017 — Summer Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole Artist-In-Residence, Borbay, will live paint the once-in-a-lifetime eclipse during a private solar eclipse viewing party. From 9:00 to 2:00 PM, guests will sip Bloody Marys and mimosas at Rendezvous Lodge, 9,095 feet (2,772 meters) above Jackson Hole Valley, and safely view the eclipse through Teton Skies’ hydrogen-alpha solar telescopes.

Following twelve consecutive weeks of live painting at The Ascent Lounge, Four Seasons invited Borbay to capture this astrological phenomenon. “I can’t imagine a better place to paint and experience the eclipse. The top-secret painting I will complete at 9,095 feet is going to be extremely special, and, I suspect, unlike any eclipse painting you will discover. My summer at Four Seasons has been incredible — I’m thrilled and honored to be a part of this magical event.”

Borbay will share the creation process live on Instagram and Facebook during the eclipse.

Snake and Jake’s and Cutty’s in Grand Teton National Park

Snake and Jakes and Cuttys in Teton National by Borbay

I had the distinct pleasure of creating this painting for the Jackson Hole Food & Wine Dinner Series. Our event, hosted by Katrina and Brandon Ryan, featured the culinary expertise of James Beard Award winning Chef, Ryan Prewitt. Together with Megan Gallagher, Haynes Poe and Chef Prewitt, we put our minds together to create an image celebrating both New Orleans and Jackson Hole.

Our love for dive bars prevailed, resulting in this hybrid painting, featuring NOLA’s Snake and Jake’s Christmas Club Lounge and the Teton Gables sign, which resides in front of Jackson Hole’s own Cutty’s Bar & Grill… and, of course, we added Grand Teton National Park for good measure.

Snake and Jake's and Cutty's in Teton National

When Jackson Hole Food & Wine invited me to paint live at a private dinner, featuring Peche Seafood Grill chef Ryan Prewitt, we decided a New Orleans/Jackson Hole hybrid was in order. This painting combines Snake and Jake's Christmas Club Lounge with Cutty's Bar & Grill in front of Grand Teton National Park… celebrating nature and some damn fine dive's, all for two great causes!

Welcome To Twin Peaks Neon Sign Painting

Welcome To Twin Peaks Painting Neon by Borbay

Welcome To Twin Peaks, fire, walk with neon… I’ve long admired the work of David Lynch, from film to sound to canvas. A consummate original, and architect of universes, I strove to capture a symbol of the great Lynch/David Frost series in a new light. Neon, to be specific.
