Metamorphogenesis – Found!

18″ x 24″ | Acrylic on canvas

This painting was stolen from Art Outside – an art festival in near Austin, TX – on Sunday, October 21, 2012.  It disappeared right off the gallery wall, with a security person present.  If you have any information regarding its whereabouts, PLEASE contact me so I can see its return.

This piece was begun in 2002 in a slightly different iteration, but the original piece was destroyed by the forces of  moisture and mold.  I then began the piece that is pictured here in 2005 as a rebirth of the original.  I have worked on it only occasionally, but I have never considered it “finished.”  It has been shown several times, but always as a work-in-progress.  I never got a decent photograph of it, and I never signed it.  I would very much like it returned to me.

*UPDATE*

With boundless gratitude I am happy to report that this painting has been returned to me by the person who took it (with a little help from their friends).  Also happy to report that I have been inspired by its kidnapping and cross-country adventure, and have begun working on it again.
