'I spy with my little eye' is a rhyme used in the children's guessing games to indicate what it is that is being looked at. In this painting the pretty lady is peeking out between her fingers. Is she playful or could she simply be thoughtful? The placement of her fingers allows us to peer into her eyes and make our own interpretation. Are we looking at her or is she looking at us?
My model for 'I Spy With My Little Eye' is my official photographer and I wanted to switch the camera lens on her, just for fun! The person who has photographed me the most in my career is immortalised forever in this painting.
