I made this painting for a project about Cluster Headache (for info en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_….
I was contacted by Al.ce Cluster Europe www.cefalea.it/index.php?optio… to create this piece of art for it to be exposed in their art gallery dedicated to such disease.
The coordinator of the forementioned association, Claudio Geraci, requested some paintings for him about the topic, where as the first painting was the burden, this is the pain.

Firstly, I'd suggest trying a 50/50 mixture of brown and blue rather than pure black - this could give the piece a bit more of a bite and more depth. And you could maybe use a higher ratio of red to create a deep, dark, purple-ish tone.
Secondly; possibly starting on a washy ground, perhaps a mid tone of red like you have in the top right to suggest layers in both the piece and the degrees of pain for suffers of such mysterious disease.
Good job nonetheless! I'm an admirer of your work
I think it's great.
I suffer from cluster headaches for the past 20 years and this painting is exactly how i feel when i'm in my headache cycle! Well done - disturbing but beautiful! You absolutely captured the pain!!!
I would love to buy the paiting.
I do know what they are like, and i think you've captured it extremely well.
I hope your art will create more understanding.
Thank you for making such an amazing art piece (eventhough it's about a horrible thing)
please make available for purchase!
How can I get this painting?
Will it be available as a print someday? I reaaally want to buy one !
Very well done - most people don't even believe how painful they are let alone are able to capture it in any medium.
