Hidden Eyes and Golden Lies

This expressionist charcoal portrait is 11X14 and is being sold with the frame to the left which is for 16X20 so it has a matte for 11X14.

Sometimes when I draw something it is based solely on a mood or feeling. And sometimes I find a reference image to work with that mood. This one is inspired by a poem I wrote years ago by the same title. It is the pain of the pain lies from a loved one can cause and their shrouded eyes when they tell them. And the intuition that you feel, that sinking feeling of knowing those are such such and masked eyes. It is a distinct sort of pain and feeling really.

This is the poem that inspired this art piece:

HIDDEN

With those hidden eyes and golden lies.
The song ends and the dance is done,
Everything within dies.
Nothing stays in the sun.

The song ends and the dance is done,
Silence is endlessly loud.
Nothing stays in the sun,
And truth is never allowed.

Silence is endlessly loud,
Everything within dies,
And truth never allowed.
With those hidden eyes and golden lies.

With those hidden eyes and golden lies.
The song ends and the dance is done,
Everything within dies.
Nothing stays in the sun.

The song ends and the dance is done,
Silence is endlessly loud.
Nothing stays in the sun,
And truth is never allowed.

Silence is endlessly loud,
Everything within dies,
And truth never allowed.
With those hidden eyes and golden lies.

                N. Albert
