Art Stories: 33 little girls chasing butterflies (Max Ernst)

I like to get lost in other people’s thoughts. I don’t want people to tell me what they think. I want to regard what they create and draw my own conclusions. I think that’s why I like reading, analyzing poetry and lyrics and, above all, looking at art. Creative expressions are a direct portal into someone’s head. Much more direct than a conversation. Of course, the connections and conclusions I draw may be totally wrong, but does that really matter? As a self-proclaimed storyteller, I find meaning in the story my head creates around something. For years I’ve been toying with the idea of creating short stories based on the works of some of my favorite artists. Most famous works have been interpreted thousands of times. But that’s not at all the point for me. I want to look at a picture with a clear slate, grab the spark in ignites in my head and turn it into a story.
