MAM: THE EYES HAVE IT

I've noticed that when I am shooting art, especially wall art, I find myself shooting just portions of the paintings.  And if it is a portrait, I often focus just on the subject's eyes.  It is amazing how different artists translate the human face, especially the eyes, in their work.  And when I took advantage of free admission to the Milwaukee Art Museum last Thursday evening, I found myself shooting just the eyes of a number of painting.  The museum was fairly crowded (after all, it there was free admission), and I occasionally wondered what the other patrons were thinking of my behavior of snapping pictures from a distance of one or two feet.

Here, roughly in order of the level of abstraction, are a number of sets of eyes.
