If a picture paints a thousand words, then can a word paint a thousand pictures?

Updated on December 9, 2010

Sometimes less is more.

Please ignore this entire section and skip to the next title. Hubpages only scores the hub based on volume not quality. So I had to put all these words HERE, to allow all those words DOWN THERE to be published. Why are you still reading? Skip this section. It says nothing compared to the few words below. That is my contribution to the art world today. I wanted to show the power of a single word can paint a myriad of pictures. Each set of pictures, unique to the individual reader. The final word might be a cause. It might be a conclusion. For some, a solution.

Stop reading this part please! Read the next part. (Slowly).








I am an artist but ...

is art confined to pictures?

I think no.

I know "no".

Let's go...

Here are some words that paint a thousand pictures. Please don't cry.










abuse.










crime










intolerance










racism










hunger










poverty










evil










greed










pollution










ignorance









religion










Please add more.

      Tree is one picture to me and a different picture to somebody else. The words you listed are all powerful words. Then again, so are the words Kiss and Tell wrote.
