A little over two years ago the Krewe of Zeus celebrated its 50th anniversary with a parade on Twelfth Night. A friend invited me to her parade party. In taking pictures I was intrigued by a pair of masks that adorned the mantle in her mom’s home. I was inspired to borrow details from both masks in making this painting.

First I started with background colors that divided the canvas surface into halves. I then added dots to depict facial features and decorative details. Currently I’m using the image as my avatar. The red sure makes it stand out.
