"Leading" --- n/a

Today I decided to put all the RULES out of my head and just compose based on instinct. This is the result and I must say it was more fun than usual. I should do it more often. I think maybe sometimes all those rules in my head crowd out the creativity, or perhaps the rules are kept in one side of my brain, (I forget - which is right and which is left?) and the creative side is the other, and it's difficult for me to use both.

Afterwards, it seemed that the lemons were leading the eye to the glass creamer, hence the title. But then the lemons seem to be the main focus, so perhaps they're just leading you around to keep you entertained???

rules??? you tickle me. I don't have one single painting rule except to make time to do it.
The work looks great.

I was led right to the glass.
Love this. Funny how our heads are filled with all these rules that hold us back :/
