Sometimes the simplest thing can feel different because of one small detail. For me, in these lovely paintings by james waterman, it's the placement of the vases with flowers on the overall ground. It's the relationship between edge and object that catches my eye the most. A little more to the center, a little higher than I expect. And because of that, I'm drawn more urgently to the object itself. Those flowers, the vessels they're in, and then I notice the beautiful colors and textures of the piece overall. But only after I've gotten over how intriguing that small detail of placement actually is.
