Default This reminds me

of a quote, I forget who said it:

"As soon as you finish a painting it is yours no longer."

I think this is about the life it takes on from the viewer's perspective. Nice thought--since each viewer is different, the painting has many lives and stories. A poem can be seen the same way.
