I can see!!!! Really! I got a new pair of glasses last week, and I can see so much I couldn’t before!! This is my first pair of “progressive lenses”.
Hmmm… Progressive? Well, if growing older means I’m progressing, then so be it! It took a couple of days before the fishbowl feel went away, but now I can see clear as a bell far away, mid-distances, AND up close!! That last one is the key, since for over a year now, I’ve been playing the on-again-off-again game with my glasses. Or peering over or under them to see something up close. Now I’m trying to break that habit!! Because I can see perfectly well from the bottom portion of my new glasses!
Oh, and I looovee the style too! They are red, rectangular, and have a lovely scrollwork along the sides which you can’t see here. Perhaps I’ll paint a profile portrait so you can see the ivy scrollwork. And the VERY BEST part of it is that the frames cost me ONLY $40!! Can you believe it?? Here in K’Vegas, we have a place called the Eyeglass Supermart where all designer frames are $40, with the exception of a few that are $80. Mine were the first pair I tried on and came back to after trying on many others. They were my favorites! If you’re a local, be sure to check out the Eyeglass Supermart at Kernersville Eye Associates. Bill West, the optometrist, and his wife Patty will fix you up right! I got my eyes checked and everything there for a very reasonable price! You don’t have to have your eyes checked there…you can just bring in your prescription and they will take care of it from there!
It really does give you a new look on life! 🙂

Really beautiful!! We should all put pastels in our hair sometime and be living versions of your art. 🙂 Glad you’re enjoying the views!
Hey Tracy, thanks a bunch! Watercolors would work best, since that’s what I use! 😉
Terrific self portrait! Yes, seeing well can make a difference.
Hang on, let me just get my glasses….tu ti tum…..just a sec…..
Ah yes, WONDERFUL!
Ha Ha! Thanks Stew!
So brilliant 🙂 I love the colours.
Thank you so much for visiting Leanne Marie! And for taking the time to comment! It’s nice to “meet” you!
Wow. Awesome work! Love all the colours!
Thank you so very much!
Great glasses! It makes a huge difference to be able to see without constantly putting them on and taking them off! nancy
Great portrait. I really love your use of the colors, so fresh and vivid.
Thank you so much!
very fun – love it! I tried progressives but they didn’t work for me – So I still do the on and off thing, finding my reading glasses for close work, or taking them off to get that squinty effect without squinting!
beautiful painting! and you will get used to the glasses! 🙂
I am LOVING these glasses! It’s amazing to be able to see close up and far away without a hitch!
They match your personality perfectly. Great price too.
🙂 Thanks Mary!
Ha I’m just off to pick up my new glasses & hoping to see better afterwards! Love the colours you used and your glasses look great.
Hey Cathy, maybe you could post a portrait of yourself in your new glasses, so I could see them! Hope they work great for you!
Love your self portrait! congrats on being able to see it clearly yourself.
Jennifer, your portrait sparkles with life. Your sense of colour keeps amazing me. Nice glasses too.
Thanks again Hanneke! Your comments are always encouraging!
