The eyes have it

Today I visited my optometrist, (eye doctor), who is one of the kindest,
funniest, warmest doctors I've ever had. What a treat going to see if 
your eyes are working as an artist (the eyes matter big time) and 
not only being told that your eyes are improving (I had eye surgery
last June), that they look great, but also having fun in the process.

My eyes were so dilated from the tests that I could hardly see when I
got home.  And hours later my pupils are still huge. I worked very
briefly on a large painting, which isn't ready to be shown.

While looking for a canvas for my art group yesterday I came upon this
one hour portrait of a model at my art group from 2013, and I really
like it. 'So let's share this!,' I thought.

All in all it was a great day in the Month of Love.  I talked to artist
friends in the Netherlands, and in Nova Scotia.  Wonderful talks.

Have a loving your life day.
