The more of these letters I send, the more I feel they are benefiting me as much as anyone else. ๐Ÿ’› ๐Ÿ’œ Dear Friend, The world outside is reopening but I am still staying at home.  One of my big courgette plants was broken off at the stem this week.  Normally this would be sad […]

Make Something New 09 – darkness

This creative prompt is somewhat vague โ€“ darkness. It may sound difficult at first, but this vagueness gives you a lot of creative freedom. Sometimes we have freedoms that we donโ€™t even know we have. ๐Ÿ™‚ Darkness has many cultural and connotative meanings that can be explored or you could attempt it more literally with a low key (dark) image. Remember that visually, darkness is the only way that we are able to perceive light โ€“ the whole yin and yang of realities.

This thoughtful state reminds me of a photo that I took last year. I had a long-time friend visiting me while he was traveling through for work. I planned to take him out to see the famous Stonehenge. We arrived early and still were among a large crowd while we made our way around the awe-inspiring stones. After lunch, I had the idea to take him to a quieter but equally wonderful set of stones โ€“ Avebury…

Make Something New 05 – Bottoms UP

This weekโ€™s creative prompt is โ€œbottoms upโ€. The phrase has a drinking connotation but your creations donโ€™t necessarily need to. Think of all the things these words could mean and how that could be creatively or literally expressed. All creative expressions are fair game โ€“ drawings, stories, photos, paintings, songs, and even fancy drinks. ๐Ÿฅ‚

Make Something New 03 – Traces

This week’s prompt is “traces”.  You can make anything in response to the prompt and you can interpret the prompt any way you like.  This is a concept I was intermittently focused on during my MFA work โ€“ noticing things like footprints and finger prints everywhere.  Living things leave a lot of marks on the […]
