The Lesson of a Moneyplant

"What the Tree Frog Sees"  12 x 16   Oil on Canvas

If you were a tree frog, this is the size you would see the moneyplant blossom.   The human eye, though, sees it as a tiny member of a larger cluster.  But the closer we move our human eyes to it, the larger it becomes, and the more brilliant the purple.  As our focus become more intent on the petals, the surrounding foliage surrenders to soft patterns.  Do we then remember the moneyplant blossom as tiny or large?
