This commission, organized by Barbara Braathen, was
based on the "nine heart" painting Tompkins Square completed a
year before in 1996.. Instead of one big painting of 9 hearts, the client
wanted 9 separate hearts. The hearts were "downsized" to a
13" diameter and painted on separate 24" squares of canvas. The
client specified four of the nine colors. Two of the nine total paintings
were sent ahead before this picture was taken. Pictures of these 2 (red
ones) will be added later. This picture was taken in my studio.
