Focused

I find it hard to keep focused on what I really want - after all - what do I really want?  This piece was inspired by the renovation of the eye ceiling at Blenheim Palace which I think is stunning. 
Do you know what you want?

Hello Nicky! This is fabulous, as if it came from a deeply intuitive place in time and space. I imagine you were there in person, at Blenheim Palace?...love that you included your source of inspiration!

This is so intriguing, I would love it in any type of textile (wallpaper, wrapping paper, poster, shopping bag, etc.)! Wow!

Lovely. I like the blue iris and brown pupil combo. It seems more surreal.

great patterns and colors choices. reminds me of a 60's poster but toned down for the 21st century. or should i say mellowed out

This is so COOL! Absolutely fantastic colors and patterns. I love the iris. And that is an amazing ceiling at the palace. Want to hear something interesting? I read that when researchers placed a poster of a giant face or eyes in a copy machine room of an office, people were less likely to steal supplies. HA! Big brother lives.
