Interesting idea, idlebrush. Given the youthful features of the face, I'd be more inclined to see deep contemplation or meditation of "the void", but all the red blood-like speckles do hint at thoughts of death.

I've come back to look at this painting several times now. The first time I looked I saw another face entirely, one that was looking outward toward the viewers right, then coming back for the 3rd or 4th time I saw the face facing the viewers left. I find this a really compelling painting whichever face I see

This is very good, I love the just enough paint and texture to make an impact. I also appreciate the psychological undertones.
Color works well too!
