Not really sure what to tell you... In one of my ramblings I once had a character start blabbing about a god named Albedo when in fact to his knowledge, which happened to be vast, no such god existed. The god he invented was the god of emptiness and of blackness. That in itself doesn't say much for his wisdom, since Albedo is I think a scientific molecular term that also means 'whiteness', which I'm sure you could have guessed. Anyways... If Albedo existed, that would be him on the left, having a quiet moment of intellectual contemplation with some random person. If you wanted to you could stare for a while and contemplate the deeper meaning of this picture. However, if you knew what was good for you, you'd instead go open a box of girl scout cookies.

Ok. I'm not going to go into what my thoughts are about this piece because it will turn into a ramble of thoughts worse than any avalanche of rubber balls that has ever been witness by human kind. Plus, I'm all out of girl scout cookies. *whimper*

What I will say is that this is a very visually intriguing piece of art. It invites the viewer to take a seat along with the two already in attendance and join in the conversation, as it were. The stark simplicity allows the eye to rest on the pure forms and lines and I find that very restful. It encourages contemplation. Hmmm. Now isn't that unexpected? *lol*

Your artistic eye really shows thru in this pic. *applauds*

I don't think I knew that's what I was shooting for at the time, but what you said sounds right... that's kind of funny. I'm glad this picture made you do more than skim over it with your eyes, that means a lot!"
