"Flowering Quince", original impressionist oil painting by Laura Reilly

"Flowering Quince", oil original, 6" x 6", gold frame
It seems like we all make things harder than they have to be.  In my case, what to say about this painting? Thinking of how it came to be - Rheta's wonderful "cheese sandwich", with great conversation on the side, the glorious coral-colored quince in full bloom in her garden, how gardener's share plants, and tips, and meanings and nuances and stories - just like writers and artists, poets and friends and family.   and, of course the painting speaks for me, and says all of that and more.   

What do you make "harder than it has to be"???!!
