Learning to paint in the Garden

Musing!  This morning Jim and I were outside picking green beans for the market.  He said, "sometimes there will be a whole lot of green beans in one little pocket."  Got me to thinking about how negative space is so important to make a painting come alive.  Some artist somewhere in time probably learned that from a green bean plant.  Hundreds of years later goofballs like me are still learning it from other artists and green bean plants.
