Cameo Glass

Is there any other painter that has mysterious paintings like Leonardo da Vinci ?

A conspiracy ... for heaven`s sake

If you want to understand how "mysterious paintings" like Leonardo's come in to existance, you might enjoy the following exercise.

1. Choose a picture, any picture, say Grant Woods "American Gothic"

2. Thinking of all you know about symbolism and hitory, begin making up a story that is secretely being told by the painting.

3. Ask yourself questionsl like: What does the pitchfork mean? Is it a symbol of the old greek god Triton? Is it a symbol of the devil? What does the arched window in the house mean? Is it a symbol for religion, does it hide someone locked away by someone or protected by the man with the pitchfork? What is the significance of the cameo pin the worman is wearing? What does her expression mean? Why does the man wear glasses?

If you allow your imagination to run wild, you can turn this simple painting into a coded message of many, many meanings.

Mystery is usually in the eye of the beholder. If you write well, you can publish the "American Gothic Code" and become rich and famous.
