#210 the Abyss
2.5"x 3.5"(ACEO) oil on gessoed paperboard NFS
I don't keep paintings often, but I think I need to keep this art card. Something about it really speaks to me. The name is from the Nietzsche quote "When you stare into the Abyss, the Abyss stares back into you." Yeah I know, kinda heavy theme today but there's something kind or honest about his boney frame and patchwork hair and beard. I'd better hold onto the old man for as little while.
