To the Unknown Helper #30: reflections on Mahler (and eyelashes)

By what mystic mooring
She is held to-day, —
This is the errand of the eye
Out upon the bay.

(Emily Dickinson)

I realized that the eyes look wrong since they have no eyelashes and also was advised by a ferry mate to expand the iris to the lower eye to make her less Popeye and more Olive Oyl. I altered the black and white photograph of the colored painting in Gimp and this seems to work. I will alter the painting.
