Looking Out - What kind of window frames your lens on the world?

Looking Out - What kind of window frames your lens on the world?

I named this painting, "Looking Out," because it reminded a tiny bit of a stained glass window. Also, it strikes me that I sometimes feel like I'm looking at the world from behind a window pane instead of in person. The funny thing is that I had that feeling before we locked ourselves in our homes to avoid COVID 19.

Don't we often take a sideline seat to observe the world and its goings-on? I know that I do that, even if that's not what I really want. It's easier to sit back and watch instead of taking action. When we make that choice, though, we have to realize that our view of the world is obscured or limited, just like this painting.

Ask yourself what frames the lens you look out of? What influences how you see things around you? Is your view obscured because of where you are situated - your viewpoint?

While your pondering, I hope you'll choose some abstract paintings on this site to hang in your home to remind you of differing frames and viewpoints.
