As many of you who follow my blog know, I have been working on this painting since January. I finished it last month, and I haven't shown it here yet because it still seems like such a mystery to me. As the artist I often feel pressure to explain the meaning behind my work, and yet, sometimes I am at a loss for words when it comes to explaining what and why.
So... here is what I can tell you about this piece.
* The cat is my late cat Salome.
* The house is one of the last houses standing in a blighted Detroit city neighborhood.
* The moon is cycling through this painting representing sacredness and the passage of time.
