Friday Rorschach: Little Girl, Interrupted

Here is today's Friday Rorschach drawing. This one was one of my daughter's.

What it actually is: It started out as a landscape. the dark blue on top is the sky, and the sun is in the upper left corner of the page. You can see the beginnings of grass at the bottom.

My daughter told me the "P" in the middle is actually supposed to be a girl's head. The girl has long hair (the stem of the P), and she is looking to the right. My daughter did not know what the girl was looking at.

But, she told me she "messed up" the painting of the girl's head (she did not say how she messed it up), so she stopped painting the girl. She tried scribbling out the girl's head by smearing the blue from the sky over it, and then she folded the painting in half (to signify she had messed up).

When I first saw this painting, I thought my daughter had meant to do everything that ended up on the page, so I was surprised to hear that she interrupted the painting because it was not turning out the way she wanted).

What you thought it was: There were interesting responses this week. When a piece of art is reasonably abstract, it requires more psychological effort to make sense of it. Some people decided to go with the simplest explanation:

Other people tried to make sense of it on a symbolic level, giving the paint splotches some sort of form:

At least one person picked up on the negativity implied by the blue brush strokes on top of the P:

And, likely due to the abstract nature of the painting, a few people let their creativity run free:

What you probably missed: Without seeing the painting in person, it is difficult to see the texture of the paint. Not to brag, but my daughter did a great job of layering the paint in the sky to create a foreboding, ominous feel. That is mirrored in the girl's hair. By contrast, lighter blue brush strokes are very thin and flat, giving the appearance that they are behind the girl.

One mandatory thing about Rose bush is, guess what happens you get. He hermes replica is a puppet on a stringed. A sock with a face painted on. A nothing. A nobody. His handlers and party leaders be sure he understands what to say, while the firms that have bid the highest get to determine foreign and domestic policy.

The hole between the haves, and the have-nots will expand. Jobs will be shipped to other countries. Nothing new. The same as the last 4 years. If the Americans didn't complain enough then, there hermes outlet is no reason to think they will complain much louder at the end of another 4 years. The flip side to this is control.
