I painted this painting 20 years ago. The assignment for this piece was to create an abstract painting on ungessoed canvas. I glazed colors over one another as I developed this piece. As I worked across the piece I implied faces in the details. My instructor had me include a figure. Some people have asked if the figure was male or female. I decided to leave that ambiguous.
This piece is not typical for me. Since it's Halloween, I figured I'll start this blog with this one. What I learned during this process influenced my later works.
