Eyeballs were not only given as a gift of sight but were put on our face
show ones emotion or expression.
All of the stuff shown above is oil on canvas or on canvas board. Nothing is larger
than 11" x 14".
I call'em Moldeyes as a parody. A study of Rat Finks Eyes. It's amazing what someone's eyes can tell you.
In most images of Rat Fink the eyes are very simple and as a rule don't
include an iris along with the pupil.
I wanted to see if by adding these features if one could express Rat Finks emotion and make him recognizable without drawing
the entire image.
The compositions of the iris study came from one image that Chansaw Chuck & Jimmy C did of a close up of Rat Fink's eyes.
I think it's one of the only images I have ever seen of Rat Fink that showed a complete iris and pupil. It really showed a lot of expression
and that is what inspired me to do the study.
Every year my eyesight gets worse and it drives me crazy. I have 3
different pairs of glasses that I wear and when I paint now dayz I wear
magnifiers most of the time.I thank God for my site everyday, It's hard to Imagine where we would be
without our site.
God Bless the Blind... Moldy
