Write a new title or short caption (one to several sentences) about what you think this painting and drawing are about and the best entry will win this preliminary study.

The Thematic Apperception Test, or TAT, is a projective measure intended to evaluate a person's patterns of thought, attitudes, observational capacity, and emotional responses to ambiguous test materials. In the case of the TAT, the ambiguous materials consist of a set of cards that portray human figures in a variety of settings and situations. The subject is asked to tell the examiner a story about each card that includes the following elements: the event shown in the picture; what has led up to it; what the characters in the picture are feeling and thinking; and the outcome of the event.

So watch out what you write or maybe someone will think you're nuts!

  10. This came in after the original due date on Facebook but I thought it was cool!

    I think it is the close scrutiny of the recent case of the Mother's trial alleged of killing her daughter. It resembles her image. My verdict....she is guilty, of at least child neglect.....but the law and the game of law.....what and where is justice???
