Still Life: Masks of Carnivale
I am enjoying all the textures in this painting, and at the same time wrestling with the knowledge that it is all purely ornamental. I don't know if I can sustain interest in merely reproducing textures for a long series. If I am going to continue using masks as a theme, I predict the subsequent works will bear little resemblance to this one. Or should I just jump ship altogether? And find a new motif? Who knows?
