    Must have been blind in that eye, didn't see it until you said it ... The eyes have it ... now I'm having visions of Odilon Redon's cyclopic eye in the garden ...

    ... and, in some ways, an incredibly inefficient way to create an image ... but I'm interested more in the process than in the result, so six hours of cross-hatching passes in ... about six hours ... I'm posting a detail that shows, I think, how the pencil was set down, resized, and then reworked over the resizing ...

    I am really liking this.. the way the space closes in and opens up hiding and revealing... the work of Mark Tobey comes to mind here..

    Your close-ups are really intriguing. The interwoven colors here are so elegant and sophisticated!
