From poem to painting

The mind journey from the quotation to the painting?
Well, I went from "she put it on like a costume" to thinking "she put it on like a mask". From there I just started painting masked faces.

Here is the excerpt:

My mother was not impressed with her beauty,
Every year she put it on like a costume,

Sitting on a stool in front of a mirror.....

From: Christmas Eve My Mother Dressing by Toi Derricotte

Last Saturday in my painting class we did an exercise where we painted from a quotation. This is mine. Posted by Hello
