Backbone…

I’ve noticed that strong photographs, sermons and paintings generally have a strong backbone or dominant theme. The artist can creatively strip such a backbone down or build it up as the mood or object might suggest, but one cannot stray far from its essence; its point of strength. To do so would be to betray its basic integrity.

Thus there can be variations on a theme as long as the theme can carry the weight.
