The Eyes (don't have it anymore!)
16 X 16
Oh, I thought it would work. The temptation to use my recent experience with my cataract and laser treatment was too much. I thought I had a good idea- depict the blurred vision with blurred words, the halos of light I saw, especially when driving. Then, for good measure, I thought I'd give a nod to what I see every day when I look up with my use of line and color. Ah yes, it all seemed like a good inspiration.
But it has never come together in a way that works for me, and the more I tried to salvage it, the more I realized my idea Just Wouldn't Work. And I had no other ideas or last minute inspirations. So there you have it, a learning experience but NOT a piece I will be putting out there after this!!
I constructed it very similar to the last challenge, although it has lots less paint. And I did learn some new tricks- like, how to blur text in PSE and how to do a gel medium transfer.
So there you have it, a learning experience on a piece that just didn't come together the way I'd originally envisioned and hoped.
I am ready to move on!
