Me, Myself and Eye...

Week 24 of Life Book 2013 is led by Kelly Hoernig.  Kelly's theme is "Eyes Are Windows to the Soul."  We are to draw our own eye and "paint" it using different magazine and book pages as well as various acrylic painting techniques.

I took a self-portrait; drew a straight line across the bridge of the nose and eyes to help me draw my eye.

Acrylic paint washed over gessoed water color paper; eye "drawn" separately using various papers, glued to each other and applied to background.  Shading of eye and brow with acrylic paints.

Embellished with background texture, rubber stamps, water color paints, hand drawn words.
