Hey! I found words!!
Well, I love the composition of this picture, the point of view you chose to use, and the colour of the horse that recalls the colour of the bookmark.
Haha. I love that you found words (you’re very good at that!) Thanks so much 🙂
There have been times in my life when I could not speak. My speech would have been filled with sobs and wails…..yet I could see.
Ah yes. There are so many ways of speaking–what is important I think is to express what is…
This is great. Your use of colour and shadow is confident, and contrasts nicely with the scratchy text. Did you have any particular prompt for this image?
Thanks so much for your words! My prompt was essentially a continuation of the day before (when I used a photo of my writing area) as part of a writing prompt. The Swedish horse ended up being a central part of the writing, as it was in the photo–and I decided to look at it with my drawing brain the next day. I love how writing inspires drawing inspires images–back and forth! I look forward to checking out your work soon!
Interesting. It’s quite visceral work. Where do you get your prompts from?
Thanks, Logan, I’m happy to know it sparked something for you. I appreciate you commenting very much!
I get prompts from all over, and as a writing workshop leader, I make a lot of prompts up myself. I recommend Natalie Goldberg’s “Old Friend from Far Away” as a great source of prompts that get you to dive into the well of your own past experiences–it’s meant for writing memoir but it is good for all sorts of writing. I am just getting back into my first childhood love: drawing….it’s interesting to apply prompts meant for writing to visual media.
Oh, I adore this! 🙂
Thank you so much for saying so, Yamuna. Made my morning brighter. 🙂
