Masquerade- Self Portrait

Oil on canvas with palette knives.
15 x 16 inches

What you see is not what it is but what is shown! We put on a masked appearance just to show the world how happy we are, how beautiful we look and how enjoyable our lives are! Who knows what lies beneath! What sorrows we hide and what fears we cover. He who can see behind my mask gets to know and understand the real me. The naked face is beautiful in its own ugliness. How long will I continue the masquerade? How long will I enact my role? Will I get to throw my mask away?
