This is the other painting that I recently finished and have been trying to decide whether to enter it or the white on black one, I’m now calling “Oops.”
The one below is on watercolor paper–a full sheet size. I have tried looking at it in every possible direction and seem to like this the best. Looks like a Mask on a woman’s face. It was constructed in anger over the painting underneath that didn’t seem to be going anywhere, so coated it with multiple layers of acrylic paint and gesso and then the large gestural lines. The black areas were painted in later, as well as some of the red areas. I’m calling it Masquerade.
