Between the time that I started this painting and I finished it I had cataract surgery. I’ve been putting it off for 2 years and now that it’s done I wish I had done it sooner. The surgery was fast and uncomplicated and when the doctor took the patch off the next day I was able to see sharper and cleared than I have for over 40 years… and without glasses. If you ever need this operation, don’t hesitate, It’s a piece of cake and you will love the results.
My biggest surprise was in looking at my work, I saw it in a different way as I was no longer looking at it through the haze of a yellow filter. All of my colors were more brilliant and the textures “cut” in a way that I had hoped for but never seen .
I liked it.
It will be interesting to see how this new vision will affect my work going forward.
