Just Thinking About You & Moses Botkin Challenge

This month Diana Moses Botkin of the Moses Botkin Challenge Group chose for each artist in the challenge to paint a human eye or eyes.  I must say there are some very nice paintings in this challenge.  There are paintings that go way beyond the singular eye and they are so lovely.  As you know I have been away from the studio and it is so good to be back painting.  My painting, "Just Thinking of You",  is a study for a larger work if I ever get the courage to tackle the human form in the future.  The Challenge made for "A Painting Day".

Some very nice paintings. Is that your eye that you painted? I like the softness and brush work.

Thanks Guga and Theresa for your comments. It is not my eye but it does look a little like my eye. Funny how a painting can go in its own direction.

Your brushstrokes and palette are marvelous. I certainly hope you explore the human form. I look forward seeing to your interpretations of our "humanness."
I so like all the paintings of the human eye that I may visit each blog and comment on every one.

I love your painterly approach, Ruth. It's SO fun to see all that textured paint, as much of the design as the subject itself.
