Eyeballs are Important

So I totally made a huge mistake on one of my paintings last week.  I forgot an entire eyeball on a person's face. 

How, how, how could I have overlooked such a thing? 
AND I didn't notice until it had been up on the web for several days....

So I fixed it....
It reminds me of one of my favorite Oscar Wilde quotes,
To look at a thing is different from seeing and thing. 
And one does not see anything until one sees it's beauty.

She was beautiful without her eye, but I was the one who was blinded?
