Good Eye Sight

click to enlarge

I've posted Big Eyed Dog for www.illustrationfriday.com before.  But I had to re-post it for the theme sight.  I still don't know what got into me when I painted this dog.  I made the weird decision to give him one super size eye.  We artists are a strange bunch I guess.  But I've always loved him.  

And I have good news.  Illustration Friday or as I like to call it Hawaiian Shirt Day (among many other alias names) highlighted last week's Beloved Moon on their website.  Yay! Please head over and check it out.   P.S.  I accidentally uploaded this week's submission with out an image.  Which I think is pretty hilarious for the theme of sight.  Ha!

I think the larger eye adds a real "interestingness." Unusual in a good way, you know?

Sometimes I think one of my eyes is like that naturally since one of my eye surgeries....

We think the one bigger eye of this portrait- adds that special something- that draws us in!

Oh he's so cute! I love the big nose, too. (Well, big for a chihuahua!) Really nicely done and really neat how you put blue on one side of him.

heh heh, funny eye. my mum had a secretary who would bring her chihuahua in to work, and we were told that if we got him too excited, his eyes might pop out! so there you go...
