Spots of color...........

I read Hensche's book some time ago and always remembered that spots of color, positioned correctly, will form the picture in front of you. Today I experimented by taking my glasses off and truly seeing spots of color..............the composition is a little too horizontal for me but I really began to understand the abstract way our eyes process the world in front of us. If nothing else, the white spots on the sides of my face began to fill in with color (vivid red at the moment!) I went to Sachuest in Middletown, RI, the federal nature reserve. Numerous rabbits, birds and even a hawk moving her baby stood by with me. The picture is oil/canvas and 11X14.
