Blue Masquerade

I am intrigued by masks. I think they are so mysterious and some are quite beautiful! I'm working on a series of 3-D collages incorporating images of masks. Here is a digital version of one I am wrestling with. Translating a digital idea to canvas has its disadvantages. It's never as seamless as in the digital work and the colors are not as vivid. We'll see how it goes.

I seem to be stuck in a "blue" period with my colors. I'm drawn to blue now more than ever. I'll stick with it and see where my Muse takes me. I love this shade; it has a mystic, otherworldly feel to me. I'm working on transferring these images onto other surfaces such as cloth, canvas and 300 lb. watercolor paper. I'll let you know how it turns out.
