A Sad Story with a Happy Ending


In 2012 I painted "Sanctuary" shown above. This is a big pastel painting at 25.5 x 19.5 inches. Add a mat and frame and it gets even larger. Complete with glass it weighed 11 lbs framed which isn't much but it was too much for the not-big-enough hooks it was hung with at a local show. It fell off the wall destroying the frame, mat and glass.

The painting was undamaged and I moved it from place to place in my Studio for a couple years waiting reframing until the other day when one of my galleries called requesting larger format work ("Sanctuary" had already shown at this particular gallery). Hmmm....painting large again sounded fun so I sprayed this one off and began again.
