Home by another way

Catalog number: 2011-0001

DESCRIPTION: This piece is a triptych (3 panels). I created it from scraps of a failed workshop composition. It took a while a get my feet back on the ground after that failure, but I did eventually find my way back home, and the journey was transformational. The name of the piece is a paraphrase of the verse from Matthew 2:12, which refers to the Magi returning home by a different route to avoid Herod, a decision that made a difference.  The left and right panels measure 22.5 x 43 inches. The center panel measures 30.5 x 50 inches. The overall hanging dimension with 4" spacing is 83.5 x 50 inches.

SIZE: 75.5 w X 50 h (inches)
