I created This is Not the End after I’d been injured and unable to work in my studio. The physical act of standing and painting had become difficult, and so I painted in short bursts as I slowly started to heal. I wasn’t sure if I would ever finish it.
One day, I scrawled something across the bottom: “We are all of us living at the edge of the supreme.” It was completely spontaneous, and the words aren’t really legible in the painting. But they inspired me.
When I finished the painting, it felt like a triumph. It was my comeback painting. And I hope that it inspires someone to triumph over whatever adversity they face in their life.
This original oil painting was created using only the highest quality professional grade oil paint, gold leaf, and natural non-toxic solvent to produce an archival work of art. The 1.5 inch gallery wrapped edges are painted so that no framing is needed. It is ready to hang.
