Meditation on Medusa's Painted Face

2ft by 3ft oil on oak panel

As a painter each painting I make I have a certain amount of attachment to, some more than others. The painting becomes an extension of myself. I am often able to sever this attachment, when it comes to selling the painting, by knowing that this new person will appreciate the painting. This specific piece was one that I had planned on keeping. With the abstract oil paintings I've been doing they, for me, are either hit or miss, interesting or not. I've only came across two pieces that I enjoy. I feel like this painting captured the feel and movement that I want each of them to resonate with. It was hard parting with this painting but I am sure that the new owner will enjoy it very much. At least I have a picture to remind me.
