At some point you’ve stood in front of a painting or piece of art asking yourself that very question. It’s easy to digest a landscape or portrait. It’s more about color choices or subject matter than deeper meaning. Dealing with abstract surrealism or narrative painting rich with symbolism, you might have to pause to find the right words to express exactly how you feel about what that artist conveys.
