Rose Petals Continued

Rose Petals by Lori Levin
This is a better picture of my painting (please see yesterday's post). Someone asked me if I actually see these colors in what I paint or do I make them up. The answer is that I really do see these colors and just push them a bit so that you can see them too. I think if we all just stopped assuming we know what we are looking at we would really see what is truly in front of us. Whenever a painting goes bad for me it is usually because I am not really seeing what is before me, instead I am just thinking about what the object is. Now, if I could only remind myself of that when things go wrong. However, then I would be perfect and nobody is perfect. :)
