Eyes of the Artist, 48×60, Oil painting on Heavy Duty Canvas for sale on my Etsy site, $555.55 Created by assignment from my art instructor, Leslie, who wanted us to address our fears.  Mine was fear of loosing my passion and artistic eye for combining patterns, colors,  flowers, unusual objects and a fascination with the costumes of matador legs.  If you turn my painting any which way, the Eyes Follow you!!  I was so surprised when we turned the paintings and my eyes kept staring at the viewer.  Hence:  Mona Lisa Eyes!!  Eyes of the Artist Eyes on Right Eyes on bottom Eyes on Top
