My painting is supposed to be a metaphor for the release of one's creativity onto a canvas. The image depicts various color paints dripping down the girls face, but does not reveal the top half of the painting to the viewer. The fact that the viewer cannot see the top of the head leaves something up to interpretation by the viewer. My idea was that the paint was seeping from her brain and onto the literal canvas to create a metaphor for how art is created, but without my idea presented to the viewer prior to their analysis of the art, they get to decide for themselves where the paint is ultimately coming from.
