Finished!- False Persona

After being around our high school kids in and out of the classroom setting, I realized many juggle different personas around different people. Each person has their own walls they build to protect or hide behind. I started to think about how well you really know anybody, and this theme continues through my current pieces. What truly lays beneath the layers one wears? What false persona masks the person underneath?
This figure is part of that series. She hides behind her layered 'mask', drawing attention away from what lays beneath .
By the way, the color is way more accurate this time!
