8 x 10 oil on canvas
My daughter got this mask last year in Florence, Italy - the birthplace of Carlo Lorenzini who is the author of Pinocchio. I did the painting over 3 - 2-hour days, working from a still life set up. Much different than working from a photo and, for me, easier to keep a looser style. This painting is serving as an exercise for a larger painting I want to start working on soon. The largest paintings I've done over the last several years have been 12 x 16 and I'm in the mood to go bigger and hopefully more dramatic.
