When addressing the purpose of my exhibition I said I wanted to make people’s eyes feel good when they looked at the work. I got a lot of great reactions from this painting. Some said it was their favourite, and one dear soul said it scared him. Granted, he assured me it was not about the painting but something for him to reflect on. I like this. It reminds me of another beloved of mine who said “this is the medicine” when discussing reactions to art.
