Hi there!

This listing is for a painting I created this year, titled "A Head Above The Rest". The materials used for this piece were acrylic, gouache and puff paint.

I kind of considered this painting to be a failure after I initially painted the head onto the canvas. The blue disembodied face was awkwardly uncentered and I thought I had painted it too close to the top edge of the canvas and had all of this open space below the neck of the head. In a fit of panic fueled determination, I decided to power through amending this issue and just blasted the words "A head above the rest" in a totally uncalculated and measure move. Somehow, somehow, this worked out for me. All of the letters (pretty much) fit in the area where I wanted them to go, minus the last "T" which is a bit of a cliffhanger. But I'm happy.
