eye paintings on old books

I did this series of eye paintings for myself. One of those lovely times when I painted just for me. I had a stack of old books I'd wanted to do something with for ages and when I saw some pictures of beautiful Georgian eye brooches and miniaturist paintings I thought the books would be perfect. Miniature eye paintings were often done for one lover to give to another because by painting only the eye no one would know who your lover was. Here's an article about them if you're interested to read more. If you'd like to have an eye painting let me know and I can do one for you.
