|Singin' the Blues|
I feel the same way about visual art. To me, great art is art where the composition, style, and colors express the concept that may or may not be given in a title. There is just something so amazing about art - any of the arts, really - and the way they seem to open new communication or understanding.

This painting has dark values, texture and edges, sharp contrast, and some glam in some parts. Of course, there is reference to a guitar, too. Depth and lostness, but at the same time hope and a safe place - at least musically - are some of the ideas that I think this little painting expresses.
Here is a passage from the Bible that reminds me of 'the blues'.
Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
