The reference for this painting is my son’s eye. He was 16 at the time I took the picture. He was looking out our front window at the bird feeder. I love the reflection of the window in his hazel eyes. My goal was to capture the that reflection but I see so much more looking at it now.┬áHis eyes seem full of promise and possibility.

It was one of my first pastel paintings to be sold. It is amazing to look back (it is 2017 as I type this) on this and see that I have made improvements in technique over the years. I wonder where it is hanging now?
