Below is a new image, new but a continuation of the dissolving process, presenting the image as though seen against a background of very strong light or sunlight. Perhaps its a hark-back to the '60's and those psychedelic posters from back then.
The below picture of the images in an array was composed earlier today. And then, on somewhat of a whim, I added the Wanted phrase. I see on Facebook that, now, 2 hours later, it has about 50 likes across a range of Chiristan-themed groups. There may be more to do on this populist theme....
The images are attracting some interest..... thanks to writers such as:
1. Gladys Ganiel, Building a Church without Walls:
2. Therese Doyle-Nelson, The Hill Country Hermit:
And there are also interactions with Christian communities on Facebook, where, on average, the Likes for the images seem to hover around the 180 mark. On that basis, it would seem that there is some appetite to have new images of The Face. I'm thinking of producing a collage of the images, an array of different coloured images, something like the below......
I have added a new section to the website, entitled 'What's in a Face?'. The idea was to be clear for myself on the intellectual purpose behind making a new image and promoting it. So, the new section takes the form of an allegory around a discussion between a Master and his students and it presents some arguments on both sides of the case for or against a new image.
I hope that it may be of interest and I welcome any comments.
I've received some requests to show the full image from the first page, ie: the image beside the website title. I was happy when this image first appeared on my laptop (when I was using a digital palette to apply more variations). It is nice when a new image appears in this seemingly dissolved format.
This particular image may have a resonance, it seems to incorporate some elements of a Face appearing in sunlight, or seen against the backdrop of a strong light source.
And there is a red variation that is quite pleasing.
