Have you ever gone into a room and felt someone was there but after turning quickly you were surprised to see there was no one? I had started with one painting and scraping down the failure on this canvas. It was a horizontal painting and as I used a thinner to wipe down one side, I though I could see a face emerge from the Pthalo Blue blob. I continue to try and wipe it down but it would not dissappear. I'm not saying I had one of those "Jesus in a grilled cheese sandwich" moments but I decided to work around it. I framed it and surrounded it with complimentary color so it wasn't so obvious. Do you see this as a reflection or someone peering in through a foggy window? Oil, 16x30.
