Matthias (and this is a subtle invitation for anyone to discuss
music/art aesthetics with me) - how can you agree or disagree with my
own subjective response to an ordinary cloud painted on canvas? How is
this possible...I'm making a statement about my emotive response to some
art, not an objective and empirically verifiable fact about an intrinsic
property of that art.   This is like disagreeing with m personal claim
that I don't like the color blue.   :)

All in all, however, I understand what you are trying to say here.
Sometimes a simple device or bit of artistic expression can be inspiring
or interesting to someone.  I concede to all exceptions, of course.
