This is beautiful and intriguing! I love all the faces!! Did you have any specific inspiration or thoughts when you created this?

Well I was certainly inspired the digital style of abstract photo manipulation circulating in trends during the time. What's intriguing to me is the continued buzz this piece tends to garner. It was honestly my first attempt a acrylic painting. I bought a starter kit and a pad and sort of doodled, keeping some rules in mind like A) I wanted a face (a trend) and B) to ornament it with a repeating item (the circles). Those sorts of things were carry-overs from digital work, everything else was trying out the medium itself. I like the piece at it's fundamental level, which was a practice piece, but it never seemed all that brilliant to me. I appreciate your support of the piece, it really demonstrates the sort of specific relevancy of a piece of art to the viewer. I actually only planned the main face, so I, at first, didn't understand what you meant by "faces" plural. Looking at it now, I can create others by looking at it in a way I never had before. It is quite intriguing now that you made me look back on it. =]

really good first try! :) i like the right part a lot! but still, i think there`s still missing something on the left hand side, it doesn`t really fit to the rest of the picture, neither the colours nor the structure. just my own personal opinion, so please don`t be frustrated ;)
