Did you ever feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? When I painted The Burden of the Responsible Man, I felt overwhelmed by how much everybody expected from me. I felt as if life was taking everything I had and not giving much back, just dangling a carrot to keep me going. Even this man's pet, a hedgehog, needs to be fed and taken for walks, but is too prickly to offer warm "cuddlies" in return. But the man’s a responsible person and so he just keeps plodding along. That's the point. I just kept plodding along, too, and things got better. I discovered that my burdens were really blessings and challenges necessary for my growth. - JCC

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, we ask that you include your location and phone number in order to get back to you during appropriate hours so we can accomodate the needs of people different time zones. We do not share your information with anyone. If you don't hear back from us within 24 hours, please check your spam folder or feel free to call us at 440-255-1200 / 800-621-1141.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
