Between a Rock and a Heart Place is a perfect altered metaphor for the place Jan Hart felt as she faced costs for two separate medical issues, each requiring immediate surgery in Costa Rica. (Read more here) Her response, in order to pay the medical expenses, is this one-time painting sale that includes many from her private collection. Jan invites you to browse as if walking through a private show. As you go you can pause and click to view a painting and details more closely. And you can read Jan’s personal comments about each. When asked how she could part with some of these favorites her reply was from her heart. “It is time”. Please enjoy this selected sale of Jan Hart’s life works. Note: Each painting is marked ‘Out of Stock’ until the sale begins, October 1. Here is the link to view all of Jan's paintings. http://janhart.com/index.php/medical-expense-painting-sale
