$13,000.00

Skepsis full-size green patina – A man is sitting on his knees thinking. What is he thinking? Has he reached a decision? Why is he sitting on his knees? These are the questions that the work poses on the viewer. It seems like he is on the verge of making up his mind and standing up. He sits still for the moment, but movement is anticipated.
