So is a mood in a painting a good thing or a bad thing? Where is the line between mysterious and creepy? I think I found it here. The figures in this graphite work are life size, it started as a triple self portrait and took on a live (or lives) of its own. Don’t fear the mood, if you can create one, that’s a good thing. If it’s too disturbing, put it away, you will encounter it again when you are ready. 42″ x 65″, graphite, charcoal and chalk on 180lb watercolor paper.
