Eyes of the Soul

I wanted to explain the piece that is currently serving as my avatar, pictured here. This is a diptych, oil on canvas, done from direct observation over a period of several weeks. The thick painterly painting employs many different art techniques, including impasto, thus it is very layered. I used both oil painting stiff brushes and a variety of palette knives, with lots of impasto mediums added to build up the surfaces.

This painting is called “Into the Soul” and it has a creepy way of looking at you as directly as you look at it. It is an expressive process painting.
