When I first saw this painting, I fell in love with it. The breads and rolls look real enough to grab up one and spread it with butter. As for the baker, well, you decide. Your challenge: write a poem or short story based on this picture, any form, any length.
No rush. Don't forget to check back to see who else posted. If you don't want to blog it, you can paste your writing in the forum instead. Good luck and have fun!
Another picture for interpretation--poem, story, or essay.
Bob has posted an item out for critique in the Forum.
Drop by and give him a hand!
Another words and picture challenge. Interpret the painting below--poem, short story, essay--whatever you like, any length, form, or genre. (Don't forget to stop back to see new comments so you know when others have posted articles.) Also, join us for a timed writing critique session. We'd like to set a date, but need to know when possible participants are available. See article here.) Now the picture:
Words and Pictures!
Interpret one of the paintings below, your choice, with verse, story, or essay. Any length, form, or genre. Let your imagination go wild. To know more about the paintings, go here; although I would prefer you do not let the reality of the scene depicted come into your piece. Just see them as nameless people and go from there.
Drawing Words from Other Creative Outlets
Okay, now here is a challenge that should even make Bob take pause. Study the picture above, The Dining Room, by impressionistic painter, Paul Signac. Consider all the details while you search for inspiration.
Write whatever you like from this painting. It can be a poem, a story, an essay, whatever suits your fancy. Try more than one if your name is Bob. If you want to try one of the older challenges first, and try this later, that's okay. I'm a bit behind myself. There are a couple older ones I still want to do.
Good luck, everyone!
