Mea Culpa

Conrad Mieschke
“Mea Culpa
Egg tempera and twenty-three and a half karat gold leaf on board
50 X 38 cm

” I came across this roadside crucifix during a winter vacation in Switzerland years ago, and it caught my immediate attention. My imagination planted the idea in my head to incorporate it in a future painting. One of those rare moments, when a perfect composition for a new painting already unfolds right in front of you. It is also one of the paintings that will remain in my own private family collection.”
