365 Writing Prompts: The artist’s eye
Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience(or if art doesn’t speak to you , tell us why.)
I am looking at a painting of Norman Rockwell. Looks like the family is gathered for Thanks Giving dinner. The family is waiting patiently for the Turkey dinner.
Mama’s got the Turkey roasted and is about to place it on the dinner table.There are smiling faces, it is a joyous occasion.
While almost everyone is anxious to get started to eat dinner, there is one friendly fellow inviting me to join them.I’m thinking is Mama a good cook?If she is I must have a bite with them. Then again do they have enough food for one extra plate?
Uncles, aunts and Grandma is visible too. What if they are not ready to welcome a complete stranger. Let me try and see if they would share the Turkey dinner with me.
Can you see me there, the little girl in the corner is smiling at me. Okay I’m in their midst, can you see me? Mama’s Turkey was worth waiting for. I’m so stuffed up,I won’t need to eat for a week, wait a minute did I say a week, no, no, a half a day.
Bye mama, uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters and papa, thank you so much for inviting me, will see you next Thanks Giving dinner, yum yum!
