as always when i do not know, curious about what size?

oil is my fav medium; your use of it evokes mystery and wonder along with darkness and the macabre; a mixture i do not find at all at odds with one another.

downloaded this and blew it up to get as close to the sensation of approaching it closer in real-life; even on the computer screen i see so many details, faces, themes, all sorts of wonders the closer i get. lovely. thank you.

it's a drops of bleach water that give the effect of small flowers?

this is an oil painting so I use mineral spirits for the drops/splatter effect.
When I paint in acrylic, I use water or alcohol for this effect.
