I revisited Luke Chueh's artwork the other day, and marveled again at how he manages to tell a complete and exceedingly sad story with each of his simple little paintings. This one is my favorite. Not so macabre as some of the others, but strange and dark nonetheless.

This is good art! The cat that is "saying" a picture of hands while sitting at a piano is heartbreakingly hilarious.

That is so interesting, the way you said that. I probably would have said "wishing he had hands" instead of "saying a picture of hands". You say what you see. Good for you.

Is that good?

Yes, it's good. It means you don't automatically color what you see with your own interpretation. Or at least not to the extent that some people do. It means you'll be more open to different interpretations of the same image.
