Removing the Disguise by Carmen Holly

Currently unavailable for purchase

Gradually I became Brave. Stopped trying to disguise myself. One by one I peeled off the mask: the ironic mask, the wise guy mask, the mask of pseudo sophistication, the mask of indifference.

Something I jotted down in a journal from a book that I read a good 30 years ago.

Face painted in Corel Painter, mask created from that face. Edited in Photoshop & Paint Shop Pro.
Infrared effect applied in the end.
