MASKS ARE ALWAYS FUN FOR HALLOWEEN
if they're created right on your own face
they can express hidden aspects of your psyche!
Here's the first mask I made - 20 years ago
using plaster strips and acrylics.
I think it shows a closed-up sort of person
Too 'persona', if you know what I mean.
I made a picture of her in black and white -
no more is revealed, alas.
Then last nite I put a magnifying glass over her picture
and got this mystifying revelation?
Ah there she is ~
full of mystery and magic
Later, with courage, I made more masks
Here's NATURE BOY
pre-verbal, shy, lives in the woods
and trusts his intuition.
That's my 'Nefertiti' mask which apparently
filled me with awe
when I viewed her in the mirror!
She can be fierce, too
Do not mess with her!
This is my crying-baby mask - she feels alone and afraid
And, of course, here's my go-to mask for wood working ~
THANKS FOR LETTING ME INTRODUCE YOU
TO SOME OF MY SELVES!
