Day 142... Interpretation is In the Eye of the Beholder

8x10 oils on canvas

Seems that yesterday's piece of art caused a debate as to its subject. This provides me with a perfect opportunity. I have told you several times that titling a piece almost always influences how you see it. Here is proof. The majority of people who looked at the blog yesterday saw lovers entwined, or similar scenarios.

While I love your honest reactions, they rocked! I thought this would be a opportunity to show you exactly how titles form preconceptions, period.  

Does it influence you or your previous reactions or opinions?
