During the last half of his life, Sam Feinstein chose to withdraw from the commercial art world in order to focus solely on his painting and teaching.  His beliefs had led to a turning away from the world of commerce, from the self-promotion and sale of what he considered to be sacred.  He spoke of creativity as a form of prayer.  After Feinstein’s death in 2003, the magnificence of his paintings and the magnitude of his legacy inspired posthumous exhibitions.
