Artist's Description

From Expressions & Sayings
Two-faced – hypocritical
Two faces under one hood was the original expression of duplicity. It was in use in this form from the end of the 14th century until well into the 19th. The earliest record is from the Romaunt of the Rose, written around 1400: ‘Two hedes in one hood at ones.’ A late example comes in the form of a rhyming couplet in Bohn’s Handbook of Proverbs (1855): ‘May the man be damned and never grow fat. Who wears two faces under one hat’. Present day usage has shortened the phrase to two-faced.
When RB member, Larry Davis, showed this image, I fell in love with it. It has been one of the most challenging pieces I have done to date. I must have painted and repainted this image over and over at least 50 times. I was never happy with the result until I tried the technique I used on Flamenco Ballet. A looser stroke and brighter background was what was needed to make the mask “pop.” Thank you Larry! See the image below for the original capture.
