Crimson Muse - MINI PRINT in 5x7 mat


Crimson Muse
This is a 4x6 MINI PRINT that comes in a 5x7 mat

The original piece (still available, check the shop!) was done with a limited palette in acrylic paint. I only used blue and alizarin crimson. It is actually a self portrait.

There are tendrils coming from the forehead. I actually get a physical response when I look at it - I wrinkle my face and I want to rub the center of my forehead to keep the roots from bursting forth - I can imagine it too well! (Perhaps because it is based on my face!)
I could see this character living in Midian. (If you are familiar with Clive Barker's Nightbreed or Cabal)
It does have a darkness too it, but that doesn't mean its an evil or demonic character. There are branches coming from the head and the hair looks like roots. Perhaps it is a forest spirit!

The Print comes in a sealed clear plastic bag with a backing board. It will be shipped flat.
