"Tara's Eye" a work in progress....
Yesterday would have been Tara's 19th birthday and next month it will be two years since I lost her. I still miss her hugely but not with the same ache. Seems right now to paint her, and what better than as the first in a series of paintings featuring eyes. She had the most wonderful eye, warm and welcoming. This is a light wash done in acrylics to get me started but the plan is to now carry on in oils. Haven't set myself a target as too how many, I'll just go with the flow. Horses, cattle and dogs maybe even cat's now that I have a good model in Charlie my aunt's cat....smile!
Holiday weekend here but apart from watching the first of the Classics from Newmarket I'll probably be at the easel. Hoping my friends across the pond get a chance to put their feet up and watch their 'run for the roses' I'll have to wait and see a re-run.
