Eyes have it but don't forget to smile

Eyes are on the agenda today.  Eyes take time.  I may do the eyes over and over and over.  They have to fit what the mouth is saying.  I love quirky grins.  Smiles of dark humor.  Silent lips.  When I get to the eyes that can change the whole feeling of the face.  If I had a certain eye shape I wanted to do it may not work.  The piece doesn't speak to me.  It is always the eyes I change.  Never the mouth.  If I change the eyes, the emotive quality changes a smirk into a pensive smile.  It can make such a difference.
