She may be waiting until a message comes that she is there and trying to help certain artist to put her vision on canvas.  Once this is done she will then know that her presence is known and will be there forever to watch over.

Wouldn’t it help to hang around the places where the artist actually works, then, as opposed to the gallery where their work is hung?
I know that I, for one, certainly didn’t spend all my time in the galleries when my work was in exhibitions.

Hmmm, if I was a ghost, I don’t know that I’d want to hang-haunt around where the artist actually works…. I know I for one talk to myself a lot, and flit from one project piece to another covered with, well, whatever I’ve stuck my hands into this time…..  I don’t like to hang around the exhibitions either though, especially my own.  Makes me a nervous wreck; I think I’m more afraid of people than I am of ghosts!

Hey Chuck….. I’m still hunting (not haunting)!

Well, if the ‘ghost’ (assuming for a moment it’s not wishful thinking and/or a publicity stunt) wanted to contact the artists and make them paint something specific, I think she’s haunting the wrong place.

What do you expect?  It’s not like the ghost has any brains, they’re decomposing in a grave somewhere.

I think ghosts or Spirits may loiter about because something’s still left undone….. perhaps they are wishful-dreaming about what they should have done but can’t physically accomplish anymore. 

On the other hand, a ghost or Spirit may not be so easily defined either.  Some suggest and I absolutely believe this, that it is NOT ghosts we see or feel, but the residue of strong emotions left behind by the living or dead.  Like radio waves that travel forever out into space, closed spaces especially hold in (for awhile anyway) the effects of extreme emotions.  It’s a bit like entering someone’s home and ‘feeling’ tension there, or that something’s a bit off.  Almost all humans are capabable of both sending these kinds of ‘emissions’ as well as receiving them.

I agree with you, ghosts are definitely wishful-dreaming.

Goodness, viewing it this way, maybe we are all capable of being ghosts, except that we’re still alive (I think) so still have time to ‘accomplish’ if we can find the opportunity to do it?

I don’t think decomposing grave-brains have much to do with the resulting ghost’s ability to think.  Aren’t they made out of completely different ‘stuff’?  Ecotoplasm (did I spell that right)?  Or I could get really creative and suggest that upon death, there is a kind of evolution to the spirit or ghost or soul?  So, you evolve and have a new way to ‘think’ or an evolved way to comprehend?  Good grief, no wonder people think artists are nuts…......

It was a joke because ghosts don’t actually exist.  Neither do souls.  Sorry.
