I just can’t get enough of painting ambiguous characters in robes. This is certainly low-hanging fruit but what fun? The mask is a new twist on the theme; now you can’t even be sure if the face underneath is even human, and I took care not to give any definitive hints as to the anatomy underneath the fabric. Since my first taste of the exotic was reading Arabian Nights, whenever I think of a far away place the initial location is inevitably somewhere in Asia Minor and these pieces are no exception

So mysterious. Kind of haunting but I like it.
I used a very light touch here, to allow for a great deal of ambiguity
That’s a really interesting work!
I’m glad you think so, but we are in a minority…
