Whether they are closed, looking of into the distance, with tears flowing from them, cast down or closed in thoughtful meditation, the saying that the eyes are the window to the soul rings true for me. Someone once told me that what made me beautiful was the way I looked right into people’s eyes. I have had impaired vision most of my life and recently (check out the image of me with one eye closed) I had a horrible eye infection that caused my vision to further deteriorate. For a month I couldn’t open my eye and for another six weeks after that I could not see properly, even with my glasses on. Now, there are mornings when it takes over an hour for my eye to start working. I was told at my last appointment that my eyes will continue to deteriorate as I age but until then, I am going to keep creating images that use their eyes to convey every possible emotion.
