eye of the beholder by jyoshi917 eye of the beholder by jyoshi917
eye of the beholder, 9x12 watercolor- Another 1994 piece, and one that a lot of my friends argue is my best work ever. This is the piece that got me started with text on the body of a woman. I saw a picture of a woman submerged under water, and the light reflected off of her body looked like text so I went with it. It reads "I can accept failure, but I can't accept not trying".

Ah, this one will always be one of my favorites. the words in the water are just brilliant, i say, BRILLIANT!!! and the detail you managed to create with something as vague as watercolor is just amazing. another high five for you *5* you're on a roll, aren't ya?

good job on the shape of the hand, i can never draw left hand side hands and the watercolours are excellent. The skin colour is very natural

This has got to be one of my favorite pieces of yours... probably part because I can relate to that feeling and the rest because the composition, color and execution is wonderful!
