I am not a big fan of abstracts, but when I find one I like it just makes it all the sweeter. This is one that I like! Thanks for sharing.

I'm told the more I stay with art the more I will understand and appreciate abstracts... Time will tell. :)

From Bette Davis' Eyes to Alexandra's Eye ... :D Wonderful to see how You change subject into an abstract marvel with still some clear reference to the re-elaborated source.

Brilliant, GX, a masterwork. The shapes and patterns compliment each other so much it's striking how well. It' feels to have great depth on several levels. Interesting portrait.

I really like how you have done the little scrolls and squares. The fill in like a clockwork mechanism, only made of computer chips. And with that going on underneath the surface, we have the surface image of both organic and cosmetic and emblematic of the arcane via Egypt. . .

Great contrast. Draws instantly the comparison, which of course is engaging because a dialog is in progress. We can either chime in or we can be the fly on the wall, though not on the eye which is why they wore that heavy mascara, before it became the all rage along the Nile.

Also love the play of Alexandra and Alexandria. The woman or the library? Or at least the woman with the books. . .

sabena, MSIE, Neal and iceaxe thanks to you all for your comments on this.. originally going to be called Dragons Eye but after Alexandra did her eye I knew immediately that I needed to change the title.

D Akey...thanks for your lucid commentary... the complex painting underneath the lines of the eye was a challenge... the eyeline was as you noticed a take on the Egyptian style of that ancient period.
