This post is inspired from my conversation with Ian last week regarding how everyone has a different interpretation on a painting.
A woman once took her young son to an art exhibit, unsure of exactly of how he might respond to the imposing gallery, the crowd of adults, the silence of the great halls, and the pieces on display that defied comprehension. As they stood facing a modern painting, which may have been hung upside down for all the mother could tell, her son spoke up, “I like this one. It’s how I feel sometimes.”
Art, music and dramatic performance speak to each person in different and sometimes unexpected ways, but they are always deep and wonderful. The artistic expressions of your culture convey the message that you are not alone in your feelings or isolated in your experiences.
Please kindly leave your interpretation of this painting “On My Mind” by Julianna in the comment box. Thanks.
