I finished this painting over a month ago but haven’t had time to photograph and post it. Turns out getting a master’s in art ed (or any art ed degree for that matter) is a shit-ton of work! If only we could just sit around making and teaching art and not writing pages and pages and pages about it. C’est la vie!
The piece that I did today has this weird red vinyl paper that I bought at Recycling for RI Educators (the best place ever). The red vinyl paper gives it a bit of an S&M feel.. that and she is at least half nude and wearing a mask. The mask was the original concept – how we all have this façade depending on the situation. What point are we ourselves and what point are we what we want people to see us as?
