“we are not very good at looking.”

"..spend at least an hour with whatever picture we hope to understand. In doing so, .. we would find out a great deal about ourselves, including the fact that “we are not very good at looking.”
...if we continue to look—if we truly focus our whole attention on the picture—then we’ll start to move away from distraction and will discover increasing invention. We’ll start to ask ourselves detailed questions about the picture. Is it a portrait or a landscape? Is it abstract or realistic? What colors define it? Where are its shadows, its highlights? What story does the picture tell, and what emotions does this story potentially evoke within us, the viewers?"
