Tune of Old Hickory

by Kelley Hensing

This piece was inspired from the Italian masks in Venice, during a trip I took this year for Carnevale. One of my favorite faces resembles a classic style devil, with the long pointed chin and hooked nose. ‘Old Nick’ has an extensive history.  In my image he more closely resembles the god of nature rather than an evil figure. I’ve also used a vintage italian frame that matched the lyrical feel of the image.
