Have you ever looked at a piece of art and wondered what it is or what it means?While I find it seems to be a common occurrence with abstracts, you may be surprised to find that other styles of art may reveal mysteries and hidden images. Some may appear to a viewer as one thing, but yet be something entirely different. For instance, take a close look at this painting done by my late cousin Denny Luckett.
What do you see?
For years, I saw an abstract looking sailboat. This painting has been in my family since I was a very young child. It wasn't until years later that it was passed down and explained to me that I was able to see the "Old Indian Woman" using a walking cane while carrying a papoose on her back. Although I never was able to meet my distant cousin, I always admired his work. I'm sure he intended for this beautiful painting to have dual meanings to the viewer. Just a couple of weeks ago, I did my own version of this painting. I respect his talents even more since I've executed my own version changing the colors for a different, brighter and more vivid look.
