Mag 82,9/11/11,

                                         *The Revenant*, 1949, Andrew Wyeth

He came on the cabin one day, when he was out with his camera .
Stepped onto bare wooden floor, from the porch.
opened one door off  the empty kitchen- and found the full length mirror.
He was startled by the damage he had done to his left eye-This was how
other people would see him- and it was horrible.
"I must get an eye patch- and soon!"
Then he snapped a picture for sketching purposes; and left.

"Hell is the other people..."

It feels like an extract from a book I'd like to read. <3

Clever intrigue shared well. Could be expanded into more of a story... sharing a bit of the patched eye.

Intrigue! Nothing like a mirror.

I really didn't notice his eye .... since it's a self portrait, I wonder what AW was trying to convey? Your Magpie is wonderful.
