  1. 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.
    Beautiful!

  2. 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.

    1. 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!

      1. 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.
