S&G 1

(no subject)

Here's what I think. A bad artist paints something with all its underlying meanings and symbols in mind. He tries to throw them in the viewer's face. A good artist paints for the sake of painting, for the sake of beauty, and lets YOU think about what it might mean. A good author may leave something up to your imagination, but a bad author is only cryptic and MAKES us wonder.
