I have been painting for over 20 years.
In all those years I have done a few works that I believed were as close as I could come to what I wanted to evoke. I can say with all honesty and humility that this last work I have prepped is the first time a piece has looked back at me and has given me the willies. I suppose it is because this mirror reflects very darkly. Shit.
As mentioned, this is a painting that I have in cue and won't be finished for awhile.
