The Dragon's Eye

The Dragon's Eye
oil on canvas, gallery wrapped
14x18 inches / 35.5x45.7 cm


When I started with this painting, I didn't have the eye shape in mind, But as I looked at the blue swirl in the middle, I started to see an iris, an iris that contained an infinite universe.  And who better to contain that universe in it's eye! A dragon of course!

The outer paint is much thicker than any of my previous paintings, so much I had to allow for extra drying time. So much that I would like to do more with this thickness of paint in the future.

Over all I am very pleased with how it turned out, even if the picture is a little blurry around the edges.

Just cuz I like this photo so much!
