The first in my "October series" I'm completing for myself. It's nice to paint something small and different and have fun doing it. I received a mask candle holder as a gift from a friend years ago. Thanks Evan! When I was looking at it a while back I thought, how cool would it be to paint this. With the mask already made it's the perfect reference. I originally planned on painting one face. I think the piece is stronger with three. In the original the background looks a bit darker and there's more of a subtle shift in color without so much contrast in areas. It's always a challenge for me to match up the computer image to the original but I adjusted it to my satisfaction. Happy October!
