My mentor Robert Gilmore always told me, in his thick Boston accent, "If you want to make anything abstract, just zero in on it." This is the case in this beautiful close-up study of the eyes and face of the artist's beautiful muse. It has strong elements of realism, while displaying the abstraction of enhanced color and brushstrokes that make this piece much more than just a realistic study of a females eyes and face. You can feel the emotion and energy vibrating from this piece.
