Reading works of art

silkscreen by Suzanne Coley
Mapping my fingers as I draw, 2014 
I wonder if it is important to understand why an artist creates a particular work?
What techniques she uses?  Why does the artist choose one technique over another?
What were his influences?  How does the art make a person feel?  How does the art make the artist feel?  Does the work of art hold up a mirror to the world and reflect reality?   Is the work more understandable with text attached to it?  What happens to a piece of art when the artist destroys it, leaving only the digital print behind?

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
