This is a rough draft. May tweak later. Terrific prompt. : )
Nice- so many stories here! thanks.
Just having a bit of fun with this one!
Is enbiggen a word? Anyway cool prompt.
Sorry, back to the fairy tales.
Heehee, yeah, embiggen. Don't you love it?
What's up with 'enlarge'? LOL
I may have lowered the tone, this week.
This is so very much fun ... thank you very much!
Great prompt...endless possibilities! Great fun...thanks! Vb
This went several ways until I almost pinned it down . . .
Interesting one - a challange! An excercise in embiggening!
Gee, that was a toughy but extremely good fun! Thanks for the prompt!
We can always count on you for fresh, trendy info: From a recent episode of The Simpsons ...'A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man' !!!!Love it.
Way more than 67..IRONICUS MAXIMUS.
Tess, just climbed on board.
Wonderful painting. so many interpretations. Mine is up.
This one took me on an adventure of discovery...
I really like this one..thanks!!
I had a bit of fun with this! Thanks Tess!
Very interesting prompt!
Had to give this one some thinkin' but I came up with something!http://lolamousedroppings.blogspot.com/2011/05/eat-up.html
Excellent prompt!Anna :o]
Great pic, and I love the embiggen bit :) Thanks.
tess i love the painting - it's like a nexus point for an unimaginable number of stories ad poems. steven
A beautiful picture when I embiggen it. Wonder what it would be like if ensmallened? :-)
Thanks Tess, a great picture to work with
It's likely my current frame of mind, but the man on the far left of the image, looking away from the rest, put me in touch with our solitary reality...
Hehehe! I have embiggened the "octain" form. The prompt, Tess . . another gift to the deranged mind. . .
Couldnt resist a second one, for fun.
Tess,Liked working with this one. You, too, play it safe and sane over the Memorial Day.Trulyfool
Well, I made it, a bit late. Thanks Tess.
Good morning, lovelies! This one was a bit trickier than the others I've done, but I'm up and posted. Very interesting prompt, yes?
I love going where the Magpie prompts take me! such fun!
Incidentally, I just wrote a poem on sculpture, immediately after which I saw this painting! And the underlying meaning that I saw in both made me wanna post the poem for this magpie! LOVED the prompt, Tess! Thanks..
Like therapy, this one was. Have a marvelous break, Tess. You deserve it!
Dear Magpies: Found this a difficult prompt as I did not know which way I should go. Anyway my poem is really embarrassing and I apologize profusely. What can I do? I know little about Tournier! This I feel will be remedied with all the fine work yet to read! Thank-you for educating me re: this amazing artist!
Took my artistic license a ways and interpreted away with those facial expressions, body language, and lighting. The young woman looks like she's in trouble, so I wrote a poem from the perspective of the man facing us, who seems to know it, too.
Tuned in a little later than usual Tess.Thanks for the prompt. Happy Holiday!
Thanks for hosting this. =)
I got here late, glad you are here. As I teach school, today was a free day, and for me that means time to play with words. I'm almost glad I had a week to mull the painting over. The ghostly servant kept coming back to me, demanding attention. Anyhew...thanks!~Brenda
tess-hope you had a lovely weekend and as always, thanks for the inspiration...c
