Abstract paintings are puzzles for the viewer. Every viewer interprets them in different ways, probably in ways that the painter had never intended in the first place and this makes them more interesting and exciting.

To me, this is a painting of an old woman, knitting a jumper for her grandson. Her eyesight is failing and she can hardly see. But in spite of that, she knits with immense joy and concentration. Because she can clearly and vividly see the finished jumper on his grandson.
