I created this piece about two weeks ago while staying with friends in Berkeley.  Originally a pencil drawing of a priest, the image changed drastically when I started to paint it.  The home I was in had several sacred statues and books lying about and the religious iconography really informed my mental state while I worked on this piece.  I was thinking about how divinity can manifest regardless of what face we choose to focus on.  This is one of the reasons the face is “covered.”  I used pencil, watercolor, acrylics, ink, nail polish and a small piece of canvas.
