Still life

When I look at a vase I see the right and the left at different times

I find it very difficult getting the right and left side symmetrical on my painting. Because I know it is I think I should paint it, but what if I didn’t ? What if I painted it differently would it matter?

The background is different on both sides.

Should My painting show what I see or what I know is there.

Although I think this is wrong because in reality they are the same and they are symmetrical.

But the point is does it matter if I paint them differently?

Just as the two sides of the face are different maybe I should paint the two sides of the vase differently. Or would this be giving up.

I’ve always wanted to be an artist for some reason. What ever that means. Perhaps it means being paid to create art or creating art for yourself? I think it would make me happier to paint every day, to loose myself in the process of painting, drawing, making ! Only of course when I am enjoying it and it’s going well! 😇 I like beautiful things around me. I like colour, pattern and texture. I like history, I like to know what has happened in people’s lives, how they have coped with life and what they have done.
