Dark or Light....the "eyes" have it.

This week at The Butterfly Effect, they are using my suggested theme of Opposites.

I wanted to keep my page really simple this week, so went for the most obvious of opposites...Dark vs Light, and have used only black and white paint(and a mixture of both).

I was going to do one side mostly black and the other mostly white...but decided instead to show how both are required to create depth of beauty in life.

I did break my b/w rule to add a hint of blue to the eyes....

for a world without contrasts would be a flat and tiresome place....
and the Light of Love could not shine without darkness.

(this is my new desktop pic, made hubby jump when I turned it on lol)

  3. A beautiful double-page creation, I do.

  4. Just stunning work Gina - you are so clever.

  5. Great piece -- LOVE the eyes. xoDonna

  6. Wonderful, Gina, as always! :) I love the concept you come up with every time. Thanks for suggesting the theme this week. :)

  7. A wonderful creation and perfect for a desktop background.

  8. Very interesting background colors at the beginning of the work, at the end are very plugged.

  9. She is beautifully balanced. Real. It's like a shock of energy sent through the eyes in the shape of truth.

  10. wow she looks very powerful, and I love how the light shine all around her... "lovely" eyes :-)

  11. she's fantastic. and she's kind of an optical illusion. As I stare at her I can make her face rise forward with her hair flowing behind her, and I can also make her face fall back with her hair floating up. cool.

  12. Love the dramatic feel you have created using the dark/light opposites here, no wonder your hubby jumped, really like it!

  13. Striking! A piece full of vibe ;)
