I think this is compelling. It makes me think a lot about psychology and our inner lives, struggles. Made me think of the grown self and the "inner child". Just because we are all grown up doesn't mean we don't feel unsure, or a multitude of emotions like when we were little. Some insecurities, fears last through adulthood despite the fact we are now mature adults. So a very evocative piece!

I agree with the title. You can definitely come up with them. A true artist.:)

Scary thoughts come to mind when I see this.

I am never sure just where the line between being 'just a little crazy' and "Insane" actually lies.

are these people acting crazy or are they insane?

That's what I love about your paintings, they always generate a dialogue with myself... or is that crazy too?

Thanx 4 sharing this with us

mothers leg and the goose that layed a silver egg trying to peck mothers hand,

excellent reactions! thanks guys = )
we are all a bit crazy, in subtle or in more bizarre ways
this one, for me, is about how strong children can be when dealing with a lunatic parent.
silvenus, you, have a very good monitor!

Oh I think it could be even scarier....
I had an undiagnosed but full on bipolar mother who only finally got treatment 4 years ago at 68. Even the police wouldn't "deal" with her. As for growing up dealing with that....well, the paintings I could paint!
I hear you La. Good way to work it out.
