fish out of water

This is a painting of a fish, from the same mural as this post. What I love is that today’s fish is not painted against a background of blue. He’s a fish out of water… When do you feel out of your element? What would it take to make you feel comfortable, when you are? […]

heron

From the same large mural as the last two prompts, this heron makes me happy. Herons are so majestic in flight, and they command respect in repose (when they are standing perfectly, immaculately still, often on one leg). Have you ever seen a heron up close? If you had wings, how broad would your wingspan […]

target

Not the store. The symbol. I’m not sure why there’s a target in this mural of a Canada goose head, but it looks neat. Maybe the artist doesn’t like Canada geese.

What unusual materials would you make tesserae from? “I pieced __________” ~ Next steps… Invitation to […]

street art

I love street art. Some day I want to spray paint a mural like this. If you were going to create a mural, what would its subject be? Would your mural be illicit, or created openly, with the approval of the community? How would you prepare to create it? “My message __________” ~ Next steps… […]
