One-Eyed Rose, 10x8 Original Floral Oil Painting on Panel



I called this painting One-Eyed Rose because when I painted it I had a patch over one eye. I had cataract surgery the previous day and the patch was still on. It was very interesting painting with one eye, because my depth perception was a bit off. I would reach out with the brush, ready to stroke the canvas, and I wasn't quite there yet. Once I got going, I compensated for that easily. When they took the patch off at the doctor's office, everything had a lavender hue except for my chartreuse-tinged Kleenex. Colors are so much brighter now, and I am so glad I did it. I didn't even appreciate HDTV until now!
