interpose (DETAILS AND FULL IMAGE), 40 X 40 INCHES, OIL ON CANVAS
At the end of 2005 our family suffered a tragic loss. In the subsequent weeks, the painting process was cathartic for me, and the resulting work, powerful and meditative. It was during this time, in early 2006, that I painted interpose. I eventually removed the painting from sellable inventory, for I could not part with it. interpose now hangs in the dining space of our home.
Artists: Have you created any work (intended for sale) that you decided to keep for yourself? If so, why did you decide not to sell it?
