The Eyes Have It, abstract art by Amy Crook

The Eyes Have It, abstract art by Amy Crook, $59

This little piece is practically a sketch with its rough lines and simple structure. I made the salt pools using paint instead of ink, and the salt-infused paint grew brittle and flaked away at the centers, as you can see. Then I added halos of color to give it a feeling like the eyes on a peacock’s tail, first scribbling with the watercolor crayons and then going in with the water brush to soften the lines and blend the colors.

The scribbly lines make for a fun computer wallpaper or iPhone wallpaper, too, so I made up free ones for you. Okay, mostly for me, but a little bit for you.

The resulting little drawing is unframed, but the stiff card would sit easily on a bookshelf or little cubby, or I could even include one of my tiny wooden easels for display if you’d like.

The Eyes Have It, 5.5″x4.25″ mixed media on paper, $59 with free shipping.
