I’m part of a group of artists who create a piece of art every week of February centred around a theme. This week’,s theme is ‘secrets’.
I like to explore new techniques during this month, it’s a playground and it always pushes me to push past my own comfort zones. Pushed by my own wishes and the great art done by my wonderful colleagues makes it one of the best ways of going out on an art adventure.
For this theme I’ve chosen to depict a Lover’s Eye, based on the Georgian tradition of the eye miniatures painted in those days. The secret of who’s eye it is, is mysterious and makes me wonder.
This piece is 2,5″ in diameter and is painted in oils on paper. The mat is a salvaged vintage picture mat, painted to fit the artwork.
