I created this face/portrait in an abstract sort of way. I liked the dark shadow covering her eye. It reminded me of a mask, or partial mask. A masquerade. Billy Joel’s song “The Stranger” came to mind. The words, “well we all have a face that we hide away forever.”
One of my loves in art is painting people and usually my faces are more on the realistic side, but I just went with my feelings on this one and hoped it worked. I like it! It actually seems
more artistic to me. Let me know what you think.
