Seeing Eye

By Possum  
This is for my partner, Chris, by way of a virtual birthday present for tomorrow! The crystal ball is his, as is the seeing eye.
Another from the 'Inside the Glass' series, but manipulated to create the eye shape (the teardrop/planetary images in the centre were sheer luck!).

Big thanks to everyone for the encouraging comments on this series, and thanks again for looking.

The colours you get in these images are amazing. This is so fluid and has the effect of drawing you right in.

In the middle I see a face...electric blue eyebrows, the teardrop is his nose, and the bit below is a disgruntled chin. All around his life is flashing before his eyes.

To the left, in the swirl, I see a purplish mandolin. To the right, a red chilli.

I reckon Grumpy Bob is a bluegrass player from Texas Smile

Brilliant Allie.... love the colours and manipulation superb again...... the 'seeing eye' got me peering right into the image.. sure ppl at work think I'm mad with my nose squashed against the TFT... BRILLIANT though not sure Chris deserves it for being cheeky Wink

Stunning stuff! Reminds me a bit of a wormhole type thing! Great manipulation!

You just want to like go through it or something!
