Painting - Oil Pastel, Charcoal, And Pencil On Paper
This painting from 1986 was done after a particularly unpleasant clash with my father. After the conflict, I retired to the basement to brood and paint my blood-red anger onto the canvas.
By morning I had the base done and worked against time to complete it before I calmed down completely. Honestly, I have no idea what the fight was about and only recall that it was a perceived slight and that my anger was staggeringly excessive.
While he actually thought it was one of my best and visceral pieces, I remained both horrified and fascinated by it.
A month later it was the first piece I have ever had accepted into a museum or a show. After three years of haunting me in my dining room I have decided to put it up for sale.
Currently the painting is matted and framed which is how I plan to ship it. Because of the media involved the painting has a variety of rich textures which are protected by the glass of the frame. The measurements are for the frame.
