Today, I get to go pick out my first pair of glasses. Granted, they're only for when I paint, but it's a big change for me!
I started noticing I was having some trouble with close up work a bit ago, but I muddled through it. Then, one day I couldn't. I simply couldn't work as close as I needed to and be able to see what I was working on at the same time. Oh, the horror!
So, yesterday I went and got my eyes checked out. While I'm mostly fine, for that up close work I need a little something, and apparently I'm just now developing slight astigmatisms in both eyes. Which makes it sound like my eyeballs are going to fall out of my head, couldn't they have come up with a better name than that? If it's just about shape, why do they have to make it sound like a deadly disease?
Anyway, I'm off to go try on frames and see if I can pull off the librarian look! I don't know how long it takes to have glasses made, so I'm not sure if I'll actually receive them today or not, but here's hoping!
I'm getting closer to finishing my white rabbit painting:
I keep looking at his eye though, and I think I need to drop his lid a bit. I know the white rabbit was generally an excitable fellow, but the paranoid look is a little disconcerting after a while!
