If he paints you
Painting: another term that has mutated to unexpected meanings in recent years. Let’s start at the beginning. Painting means what it means: “To cover the surface of something with a color” (whether it’s a canvas for art purposes or a wall for more practical purposes). Then, from the most literal senses, we turn to the figurative ones: “The panorama paints bleak” or “I was painting at the party” or “that dress is painted for you”. And, in the latter sense, a derivative noun: “What does it look like!” (we don’t forget the pint of beer either, but that’s another topic…).
The curious thing arises when the verb to paint is slowly transformed into a way of justifying something we do without apparent reason (or at least no consistent reason):
– Why did you do that?
“ I don’t know, he painted me.
Or, also, to perform a Invitation in appearance selfless:
“ If he paints you, I’ll be home tonight.
It is used, moreover, in the sense negative:
– Why didn’t you go to the party?
“ Because he didn’t paint.
Paint, then, now seems to be an impulse to which we chose to give ourselves, to follow the current. We do things “because they paint” and not because we want or because We decided. It’s, in a way, a way of not taking over. Or to live the moment.
An expression in which spontaneitycommands and the premeditated has no place. Because sometimes it’s okay to do things with a clear motive, but from time to time it’s okay to do what you paint. Avoid that the reason is the one that guides and gives a little space to the emotion, to what we feel. To what he paints: at that moment, in that place. Because I do.
