    2a7eec27d2e0b7b5a8b90ba033f25117.jpg This is one of my favorites. It is odd, creepy even. Yet without a doubt it has considerable beauty.

    And no, it is not me and my mother.

    "Wierd and beautiful" sounds like an old girlfriend I once had.

    For me, some things, such as this painting, not so much take me to another level, but strongly indicate it's existence. Perhaps dreamy, trippy etc would have served equally well but for the fact that I often find the experience rather unsettling. That is what I meant by "creepy". I agree though, it was not a good choice of word.
    Purely my personal experience of course and that is what art is about.
