Let your own light shine, because together, we will light up the world. Even this guy, with his hump and imperfections, he isn’t afraid to let his light shine. Sometimes it seems my quietest paintings say the most important things. This is one of them and I like it quite a lot, in fact, I’ve never sold it.
This is a study of balances and opposites, light against dark; life against death. The checkerboard has always been a symbol for the playing field of life, and in this case, I have it fading in into infinity rather than ending in a sharp line at the horizon. The hunchback, our everyman, shows signs of vulnerability. The flower of life is embroidered on his sleeve, but the skull, a memento mori, is in his cap. One thing is for sure, he will only have a limited time as a player in this game. Yet, even this frail mortality will not prevent him from letting his light shine. He sits in a sky full of stars, which may be others like just like him, holding up their lights in the dark. We're candles in the darkness for each other, so it's important to let your light shine, no matter how small it is. - 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.)
