Have you ever been in a theater or concert venue before the show? Were you lucky enough to watch the stage crew get ready? I’ve stood on plenty of stages for “light checks” – when the lighting crew tests the spots, the colors, the filters, etc., and bathe at least one human face in an incredible array of colors. Lighting matters because the colors in light tell stories. That’s why I love this face even though it’s not what it was “supposed to be” and even though I know that some people will be turned off by the sad eyes and the highly-saturated colors. Those colors, surrounding those eyes, matter. They have stories to tell.
(Tomorrow I’ll post this new face in my Shop on Redbubble.)
