When I showed this painting to my friend Father Sean who happens to be an Irish Catholic priest, he suggested I call it "Meditation" and I can see why he would suggest that. The thing is, I find there is just a bit too much distraction in their eyes and that alerts me to the possibility that they have performed this particular procedure a number of times before. Enough to become a ritual. I suppose meditation can easily become a part of your ritual anyway so Father knows best after all.
