    I love the details, the background and how the shiness, lines and contrasts of the face highlights its unique charcteristics. It’s like one seeing himself in the mirrow and reflecting the qualities of the One who made us.

    Such a simple yet descriptive paint suits the pasion,kwoledge and insight of its creator.

    Good Job!

    Ah, these type of paints reminds me Guayasamin(ecuadorian painter).

    PS. I do not see a mask, rather I see a face with all its
    traits.
