I see it too but I totally love it!  Maybe it was some unseen force ghostly or otherwise working through you but I think that makes it even more appealing!

Hello, disembodied head! But, must say, I love the painting despite!

Fantastic job!

I see eyes in the dark part up to the right. Not a whole head, but eyes looking through a mist.  Spooky.  I don't see a head in the white part.  Wild.  I like it!

Hey hun,

I really hope painting is releasing a bit of the tension and stress that PND can bring.
I guess it's nice to be able to get away for maybe even a couple of hours a week to create art Smiley

In regards to this piece, I actually see a few things as well as the face, forst, I see a door and steps leading down, to a basement? Or maybe from the attic..
I also see the figure of a man leaning on a wall (to the left of the pic) with his head hanging and looking towards the floor?

Anyway.. this style reminds me of an exhibition I saw a while back in a local gallery by an artist called Becky Rose www.beckyrose.co.uk she did a series called 'an illuminated disturbance' the colour palette and style is very similar to that in this image Smiley

Keep it up, I'd love to see some more Smiley

Ooh wow, looking at this again I also see a figure lying on the floor with its shoulders and head propped up against the wall, to the left..!
I love painting like this. There's so much in them. emotion-wise, aesthetically.. gorgeous Smiley
