The Holy Face

I painted this around the time the Passion of the Christ came out. I had been working at the time and felt I had enough of an income, so I decided I didn't need to sell all of my paintings. I gave it away. The person who received it also gave it away. I learned two things from this. First, do not imagine people will appreciate a particular work or even want it. Secondly, people really do have a greater appreciation for an object if it cost them something. (It is a rather grizzly image - the photo doesn't help either.)


(Acrylic on canvas, with moustache hair and human blood.)
