Hell and Bak 4 A.M.

Oil (60'' x 24''), 2014

I used my shadow to outline the silhouette of my head onto a small canvas. By using a palette knife I was able to get a very fleshy feel to the face. At 4 A.M. I decided to use white gesso and drip paint the main section. After waking up the next morning I  realized that it had came out resembling the words "Hell and Bak; 4 A.M." which was the way I was feeling at the time since the painting was not going how I wanted it to.
