Describe your gut reactions:

“It looks very abstract. It involves many colors. I like how there are babies and a parent. It is quite odd looking to me, I’m not sure why. I like how flowers are sued, and certain shapes.”

“I see a sign of beauty in this picture.”


Imagine possible meanings or thoughts:

“I think the babies and the parent means love. It does not matter what type of love. Many beautiful flowers could mean admiration.”
