I just had the chance to explore your blogs. This painting of yours, i take it, is ... just fascinating. What the story behind it? Where can I see more in the series?

The cow hearted women were a response to a cardiac scare...and an ongoing fascination with masks as a device that removes inhibitions and allows the idea of a "spirit" to inhabit an individual. In African masquerade culture, the wearer of the mask becomes the spirit that the mask represents.
