The eyes are the mirror of the soul” and what engages the viewers first, I am told, are the eyes. It is obvious that most of the masks images I had painted before this were male as they emit a strong, yang energy. The eyes were always large and open. “Zen Bliss” not shown here, was the first of the gentler masks and show the change I have experienced within….a shift that has engaged with my feminine side, once my dominant essence which I had lost and now have found. The one shown is not titled but reflects the feminine energy which has slowly come forth.
Painting these masks has brought a balance between the male and female energies within me.
