Here’s some more faces I painted in Color Theory. They also look like other things I’ve seen.

I can’t pinpoint it, but it looks like an old carnival painting I saw faded on a wall one time.

I gave that one to my dad for Christmas. It looks like Birdo from Super Mario 2:

That one’s my favorite. I gave it to my mom for Christmas and she swears it’s a male, although I don’t know why she’s so certain.

I’m thinking that painting faces is a subconscious exercise like the one where you’re supposed to write gobbledygook on a page and eventually your deepest feelings will come out. These paintings showed me the kinds of things I’m going around thinking about without realizing it. I did some cityscapes too. I’ll show you those soon.

    Great and fun post, Scentsate. You’re right in that it does make one think.
    I agree with your Mom that it might be male, but it really could be either.
    Very interesting and must have been a lot of work.
    Thanks.
