I began this intuitive piece with little to no intention. A spark of inspiration ignited as I placed his face onto the canvas. This wasn't just any face—it was a piece of art with a story of its own, carefully cut and stitched from one of my older paintings. Once attached, the face began to influence the overall feel, reminding me of one of Picasso's acrobats. As I continued, I fell in love with the contrast between his whimsical charm and subtle gentleness.
