This face in this acrylic painting may have many interpretations. The backdrop is a city. Is it New York? Is this the face of the Statue of Liberty? Is this a tourist in the city with an image of a camera over the left shoulder? As with most of my paintings I began with a non-subjective abstract. Then I found the face in the paint. White clouds appeared above the head. I added the shapes of tall buildings in the background with Caran d'Ache Crayons which I made permanent by blending them with acrylic medium. I did the same to emphasize some areas of the face. It was painted on Yupo, a synthetic paper, similar to a sheet of soft plastic.
