I feel very strongly about that as the artist must keep the viewer interested or they will say goodbye! :>(
I look at a painting without movement to be a "still life" - when outdoors, 99.9% of the time things are moving ------ so why not show that in a painting? It can only generate viewer interest and also act as a tool to have the viewer, in their mind, concoct a story from the painting. There always needs to be some unfinished parts of a painting to allow viewer interaction.
"OK - I'll COME WITH YOU!!"
