New start!

I finally settled down with my work space and started working again. I'm excited to be productive and I hope to keep the momentum going. Here is the piece that I came up with. 

The idea was taken from the article about the hannya mask. It is used to represent a vengeful and jealous woman. She was once a beautiful woman. However,  her unrequited love causes her turn into a monster consumed with jealousy, rage, anger, and revenge. 

"the mask she wears"
Mixed media and digital. 8.5"x 11"

It is hard to overcome anger/sadness sometime but I hope her mask will come off and become happy and beautiful again.

Wishing you luck in your new start*
