The Face Behind The Mask
oil, acrylic, molding paste on panel

This painting launched the Mask Series. My intent was to create an imaginary, highly textured, feathered, dragon mask worn by a beautiful woman. Often, people would not recognize the face behind the mask as a woman, but thought it to be an aggressive male. We all wear masks in life, choosing to hide or reveal what is inside.
