Tale Weaver 28: art & artist

art and artist

Artist: M.C. Escher; Completion Date: 1948; wikiart.org; The Drawing Hands

Like an explorer using star charts, the visitor to an art museum maneuvers between different constellations (17th century artists) planets (post-impressionism) and comets (painters of Tsarist Russia). On a route of discovery/recovery. To become lost in the paintings, surrounded by the art.

One afternoon, you become more than usual lost in the art. You wander into a gallery tucked away at the end of a long hallway. Hanging on the room’s beige walls, is an odd collection of paintings with no clear linking theme, style, painter. You turn to go, but instead, find yourself inside a painting looking out at the gallery.

Weave a tale about your experience inside the creativity of the artist’s mind. What is the subject/style of the painting?  How does it feel being on the inside looking out? What surrounds you, interacts with you, finds/discovers you?

  1. I think I know what may have happened, Widow. You made a link to my personal response to my prompt. So, I have a ping back. It’s an easy thing to forget that the ping back is to the original prompt page in the MLMM site.
    If you feel like it, you can add your post by pinging it to https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2015/08/27/tale-weaver-28-art-artist/
    Accidentally creating ping back to my response to the prompt would explain why you didn’t see it, or get responses!

    Or, as I mentioned you can click on the MMLM image and post your url through the blenza. I’ll check and see if you did this. If you didn’t and want to, just copy the url of your post, click the link, and follow from there.

    Any more questions, just let me know.

    I do write for that audience of one.
