Beautiful painting, quirky quote. I think, personally, that it's a testament to how people are influenced (and not necessarily with a negative connotation) by the people around them: their ideas and opinions, etc.
"Creativity is subtraction" by Austin Kleon: What does this mean? - "One, getting really good at creative work requires a lot of time and attention, and that means cutting a lot of fluff out of your life so that you have that extra time and attention. And two, creativity in our work is often a matter of what we choose to leave out, rather than leave in—what is unspoken vs. spoken, what isn’t shown vs. what is, etc." #Creativity
