Artful Monday

Ok, we are trying something new, be nice and oblige me by playing along. It's time to expand our horizons. I think it's clear we all love the written word and dissecting its meaning as it pertains to each of us, if we didn't we wouldn't blog or read blogs would we.
I'd like to embark on new territory; I'm a fan of abstract art, partly because it leaves lots of interpretation to the viewer, and its a wonderful tool for expressive conversation. I'm no Pablo Picasso, but I like to dabble in abstract art, I find it to be a useful mechanism in relaxing. Starting today, we will make Mondays our art day. I will post a piece of abstract art with no supporting verbiage, the piece should communicate to you on its own. Let's see how each of us views it and what comments it can shake up, most of all, lets have some fun doing something different!
Today's piece For You To Ponder is titled Madness.

    Leave it to you to try to stretch a brotha's mind! I will be first to take a stab at this, i guess there can't be a wrong answer. I dont see madness as in anger, but madness like a mental illness. It looks like you may be representing distorted thoughts. i like the bright colors.

    Not sure i I like this, looks like a bunch of motion, but I guess thats what madness is.

    Having someone close to me that suffers from mental illness, i can see how you came to create this. The mix of colors are like thoughts that are jumbled. Even though the picture is pretty, understanding the thoughts can only be done by the person doing the thinking, just like in the mentally ill. I am not sure if this is where you were going with this but its what I got from it.

    I see a suicide attempt, maybe slit wrists. The red could be the splattered blood. The person tried to commit suicide because of mental illness.
    I'm a fan of abstract art and stumbled across this blog accidentally, i think its a cool thing to do.
