Mixed Media - Surrealism, Painted Portrait Photography
"Carnaval de Rio de Janeiro"
A surrealist self-portrait of the artist in a butterfly mask celebrating Rio's annual carnival that coincides with our Mardi Gras. I used primarily eggplant purple, lavender, salmon pink and aqua blue on a black background in the color palette for my photo painting. Very "Eyes Wide Shut" don't you think? Please visit my Surreal art gallery to see all the artwork that springs forth from the deepest recesses of my delightfully twisted mind.
