[Harp-L] Comment about appreciation of art (music)

Many of the discussions about appreciating music (familiarity, education, culture, brain development, etc.) have been very thoughtful and thought provoking.
  Before my brother's death, he had produced some incredible paintings and had been gaining attention for his art (abstract/ impressionistic), particularly in oil and acrylics.
  I asked him once about what a particular painting "meant"; what was he thinking.
  His reply was, " Do you like it, or not?"
  I paused and honestly answered yes.
  He just said, "That's all you need to know."
  He was not being a smart-ass. I will avoid using the "Z" word.
