    What mood does this convey?

    I did this in art therapy and am considering placing it in my office as part of the therapy. However, I just want to know what kind of message this is sending to someone who does not know the details and emotions that form the background to the picture. I am also not going to tell people I did but intend to just let it hang there.

    Can I just have some feedback from someone just glancing casually?

    Thanks in advance.

    At first glance it looks like a party is going on, but on further examination it looks like some sinister stuff is happening. People jumping off the cliff together, people chopping up a body and throwing it off the cliff? A couple of people either trying to help some one up a ladder, or maybe they are trying to shake him off to plunge down the cliff? A dude wielding a bloody sword? No body else reacting to all this stuff?

    Definitely evokes some kind of weird unease in me. Something very wrong seems to be happening. The characters are holding esoteric shapes, there's a ladder. For some reason, I'm getting the "a person is smart, people are stupid vibe" like everyone's brainwashed by a f*cked up culture. But maybe that's just me projecting Interesting choice of imagery to keep in an office. I think it would freak me out all the time!

    What sort of work do you do?

    It's very dark in content but the technique is bright and child-like which gives us that sense of unease because the elements contrast so wildly. It's like having something that says "This kid is a serial killer." To the subconscious.

    However, since it's in an adult's office and not a class room it's most likely going to come off as you just having a dark sense of humor. Which as I understand is a sign of intelligence. Of course, I'll believe anything I read on the internet.

    The best way to hunt in a mushroom forest is to climb on the back of a butterfly.
