Somewhat abstract drawing of an eyeball and swirly linework, ink on paper (8x12).
Inspired by the transcendentalism unit in my 11th grade English class:
"We return to reason and faith. There I feel that nothing can befall me in life, — no disgrace, no calamity, (leaving me my eyes,) which nature cannot repair. Standing on the bare ground, — my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite spaces, — all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me" -Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature (1836)
