I am currently doing a painting of the eye. Hopefully it will become part of an ongoing series. Whenever I start a work I do extensive research on the subject. I at times utilize text in my work to further etch in my mind the various facts that I have attained. Testing myself as it were by writing and rewriting what information I have conciously retained – I paint what I know. The image at the top of the page is a work in progress. It will contain a video that will reveal itself in the pupil of the eye intermittently. The video can be viewed by clicking the following link.
The bodies of all living things never cease to amaze me. I was doing research on the sclera. I learned that horses and some lizards can have black sclera. You all may have known that.

The sclera is clearly visible in humans which helps others to determine the direction of gaze.
