Oooooo YES... beneath the flesh... Very awesome work here. I am intrigued with the 3D elements melting into the piece as well.

Goddamn, that texture is fabulous. It really looks like the skin of her upper face has been flayed away, revealing the macabre truth beneath.

Thanks, Rachael! I did that for contrast of mood as well as texture. You nailed it- the skin is the mask. :)

I particularly enjoy your inclusion of textures in the actual portrait on this one. I also find it a strange dichotomy - her upper face has all the anger/snarl wrinkles I would expect with that expression, but her lower face, much more masklike, shows almost none.

Love, love, love your use of three-dimensional textures integrated with your paintings.

Carnivale means celebration of the flesh, i think it is ironic that many schools have carnivals to add on to their bake sale
