Ground for ‘Black” – one of two exploring negative and positive imagery

As I think I mentioned, each one of these paintings has had it’s own ‘arc’ from concept to completion, which I’m only partly in control of.  This one in particular has been a journey I wasn’t expecting.

Cobwebs are not my intention, nor an indication of how I feel.

Done.
Done.

Now it’s about veils, and the Self behind the face.

…just one of fourteen journeys….
