This is a 3D painting.  The face was first modeled in an acrylic material and then paint was applied. The nose actually lifts off the surface of the canvas by about 1/2 inch. The other features are less pronounced accordingly giving the face a true sculpted look. The photo does not fully show how visually exciting and unique this method is, but the painting has a real time and space presence that borders on remarkable.
