“When it is dark enough,
you can see the stars.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mystery. The word and the image form your prompt. Synonyms include secret, problem, story, puzzle, enigma, riddle. What cannot be fully understood by reason ~ something that defies explanation or comprehension ~ a piece of fiction about solving a crime. What colors do you find mysterious?
Rhymes with history.
Who is your favorite detective?
“As a rule, the more bizarre a thing is the less mysterious it proves to be. It is your commonplace, featureless crimes which are really puzzling, just as a commonplace face is the most difficult to identify.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Prompt Pep Talk. If you find it challenging to create art based on a prompt, but you want to give it a try, perhaps you could see prompts as games? So take them out for a spin. Play around. See what pops into your mind when you mull over the word, related words, synonyms, quotes. Search for a link to something that matters to you, something that resonates. It's just a starting point. Can you relate the prompt to something in your daily life? Your cultural heritage? A movie? I dare you to go beyond the literal interpretation.
