Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small. We haven’t time – and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time.
I could paint the flower exactly as I see it no one would see what I
see because I would paint it small like the flower is small. So I said
to myself – I’ll paint what I see – what the flower is to me but I’ll
paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it
– I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of

…Well, I made you take time to look at what I saw
and when you took time to really notice my flower you hung all your own
associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as
if I think and see what you think and see of the flower – and I don’t.
