the eyes

My muse has been funny lately. There are images floating in my brain that I want to paint, but fear they exceed my skills. I WILL do the muse's requests and show them to you. They take longer though. I think the muse wants to stretch my skills, and that is a good thing. Sometimes there is wisdom in sticking with the familiar, and that is animals for me.
So between two paintings the muse requested, I did a puma. Here it is. Nietzsche said that, "when you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you." So it is with eyes.

This one is really outstanding. I like the fact that you cannot see both eyes and the one eye you see is oh so intense. I like it!
