A Very Direct Look

Wolf Oil Painting - A very direct look
This oil painting of a rather regal-looking wolf is currently propped up on the side in my studio. Whichever way I turn, his eyes are watching me. He is not particularly threatening but his scrutiny is direct and it is determined, at least so it seems.
There is plenty of research to explain why the eyes in certain paintings seem to follow you around the room (here is an example) and it is not magic,  but it is still quite weird when you pull it off.
