Hello everyone, today I like to talk about my love for the eye. Last week, in our Art class, I had to paint the eye. I was intrigued. Even when I was young, I would always doodle the eye. Strangely, I always drew only one eye. I never understood why I did that. When the class was boring, doodling helped me. In this assignment, we had to paint in abstract form. But I didn’t want to follow that instruction and painted a realistic eye. Then another student suggested I do some splattering to make it look more abstract. I loved the outcome. This art has a combination of ink and watercolour paint.
I think the eye is an integral part of our emotional being. We can derive a lot of information from the eyes. I am not sure if others would agree. I can detect honesty, anxiety, depression, happiness and many more emotions in the eyes of the beholder. Maybe that is how the phrase ” the eyes are the window to the soul”. Many times, I have detected sadness even though the person is smiling. Recently, I saw a picture of some of my old classmates. Everyone looked happy except three. One looked exceptionally sad. However much we try to camouflage our lives, our eyes hold the truth. Please share your thoughts on your own experience.
Till the next musing, enjoy the moment.
