Details matter. They do. Seeing the 'big picture' is impossible without the details to fill it out. Details reveal the richness, depth and wonderful flaws of what we have in front of us. To illustrate, if we don't take the time to study the details and complexities of the people we love, how will we ever truly know them? We learn amazing things by taking a closer look at nature. Think of the texture of a cat's tongue, the underside of a butterfly's wing, the structure of a grain of sand. To me, it is the details that make a work of art truly noteworthy. I may be struck by the work as a whole, but it is in the details that I find real joy for they reveal to me so much about the artist behind the art.
