I posted Banquet Scene with a Lute Player by Nicolas Tournier, 1625,
last week, and had several requests for it to be a Magpie prompt.
Happy writing, my friends.
This is a rough draft. May tweak later. Terrific prompt. : )ReplyDelete
Nice- so many stories here! thanks.ReplyDelete
Just having a bit of fun with this one!ReplyDelete
Is enbiggen a word? Anyway cool prompt.ReplyDelete
Sorry, back to the fairy tales.ReplyDelete
Heehee, yeah, embiggen. Don't you love it?ReplyDelete
What's up with 'enlarge'? LOLReplyDelete
I may have lowered the tone, this week.ReplyDelete
This is so very much fun ... thank you very much!ReplyDelete
Great prompt...endless possibilities! Great fun...thanks! VbReplyDelete
This went several ways until I almost pinned it down . . .ReplyDelete
Interesting one - a challange! An excercise in embiggening!ReplyDelete
Gee, that was a toughy but extremely good fun! Thanks for the prompt!ReplyDelete
We can always count on you for fresh, trendy info: From a recent episode of The Simpsons ...ReplyDelete
'A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man' !!!!
Way more than 67..IRONICUS MAXIMUS.ReplyDelete
Tess, just climbed on board.ReplyDelete
Wonderful painting. so many interpretations. Mine is up.ReplyDelete
This one took me on an adventure of discovery...ReplyDelete
I really like this one..thanks!!ReplyDelete
I had a bit of fun with this! Thanks Tess!ReplyDelete
Very interesting prompt!ReplyDelete
Had to give this one some thinkin' but I came up with something!ReplyDelete
Great pic, and I love the embiggen bit :) Thanks.ReplyDelete
tess i love the painting - it's like a nexus point for an unimaginable number of stories ad poems. stevenReplyDelete
A beautiful picture when I embiggen it. Wonder what it would be like if ensmallened? :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks Tess, a great picture to work withReplyDelete
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...ReplyDelete
Hehehe! I have embiggened the "octain" form. The prompt, Tess . . another gift to the deranged mind. . .ReplyDelete
Couldnt resist a second one, for fun.ReplyDelete
Liked working with this one. You, too, play it safe and sane over the Memorial Day.
Well, I made it, a bit late. Thanks Tess.ReplyDelete
Good morning, lovelies! This one was a bit trickier than the others I've done, but I'm up and posted.ReplyDelete
Very interesting prompt, yes?
I love going where the Magpie prompts take me! such fun!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
LOVED the prompt, Tess! Thanks..
Like therapy, this one was.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Tuned in a little later than usual Tess.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the prompt. Happy Holiday!
Thanks for hosting this. =)ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
tess-hope you had a lovely weekend and as always, thanks for the inspiration...cReplyDelete
