Caption/Title Contest: Thematic Apperception Test

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 the watercolor preliminary study.

Contest closes Monday July 4th

Untitled watercolor and wash drawing on watercolor paper  approximately 10"x14"

This is based on the 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!
