The Tattoed Mask
Painting - Oil On Canvas
"The Tattoed Mask, is an oil painting on canvas, by Janis Tafoya..this is an original....The Tattoed Mask represents differences in personality, we have
a tough, hard side, sometimes it is for protection, sometimes for other reasons. this mask is made of a hard metal but on the outside it it also covered with
gold, which is soft, beautiful and valuable. The gold represents a softness that is sometimes put on the outside of this mask.....On the cheek there is
a tattoo of an angel face....this angel face is peeking through the tough
outer shell....This represents kindness, inner beauty, love....this painting
stands for the differences we may have in out personalities....it is like
fire and ice, cold and hot, love and hate, yen and yang.....It is my hope
that this painting by Janis Tafoya will enjoy this painting..... I am primarily a self taught artist, learning with the help of videos and books....my paintings spring from the heart and emotions....these paintings are original works of art..For me painting is emotional therapy and when I am creating art I go to my special place, where time stands still, problems are gone and there is at last peace in life. My hope for you is that you will experience some of the peace when you view this artwork...Enjoy
