When I read this in a magazine today it stopped me in my tracks. We actually have far more choices each day than we may realise. Each time we interact with another person we have options to react in different ways. And each of those reactions will have a different outcome. A sobering thought - our lives can go in different directions so easily!
This is why every artist sees the world in a unique way , I guess. We are all attracted to subjects for different reasons , and will react to the same subject in different ways.
Walking down a Wellington street some years ago I passed some Japanese anemones growing beside the footpath.I had passed them before, but they hadn't taken my attention. This day my eye was drawn to the way they were dancing in the sunlight, so I went home and got my camera. Once I stopped and checked them out I was fascinated by the way the light was striking them.Someone else may have noticed the shadows they made on the background fence. Or thought they were a weed and pulled them out. But I decided to take the time to observe them and this was the painting that came about.
Maybe tomorrow you could consider your reaction to something or someone , and try another option- who knows what might happen?
