Ghost of Past by ArtByCher Ghost of Past by ArtByCher
Over and over again. The nightmares of the past follow you to the present. Watching your every move.
The face is not clear. I wanted to make it something that anyone could visualize and think of their own situations. The red symbolizes blood, the draining from our own self as we deal with our fear. The fear of whats in the walls, outside our house and within our minds

Acrylic, thick molding paste, alcohol, on canvas

Looks great. really nice composition and colours.
I would transform it by hanging upside down and change what u call blood for abstract flowers ;)
Seems everything has dark and bright sides ;)

I do think it is what you said suggestive to whoever views it and therefore anyone can take what they want form it. Great work i am loving the mixture of what looks like the alcohol and the blue bleeding into each other.

This is absolutely fascinating painting dear Cheryl! The Ghost of Past resurfacing from our soul, invisible, untouchable, but so heavy and making bloody wounds in our hearts... Our enemy which we are fighting with...

Incredibly impressive work! :wow:
