Key ingredients are essential for creating great art. Let’s learn more about this…
Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic each week to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s humor (funny, it was humor the week before, and the week before that, and the week before…)
Texture. Color. Form.
Professor Grinorbore said these things were key elements in artistic creation providing interest, depth and movement.
So, for my end-of-year project, I created a sandstone landscape infused with pepper, paprika, and other seasonings, tossed a teensy bit of light green celery to the left, and placed a gray mold-covered wooden spatula in the center.
I called it Inseminating Life On the Planet After Global Warming.
He went Lady Gaga over it.
For me, it was just old crap that I had around the house.
Goes to show you the old adage is true: one man’s art is another man’s crap.
I went to the Kansas City Art Institute. I’m think I remember that art teacher. Funny as always.
He was the cousin of Professor Grinandbearit
Love this. I went to art school too, and I think I also remember this teacher. (Very small point – I wonder if changing the first ‘crap’ to another word, would heighten the use of it the second time? Just an idea.)
Thank you, Claire.
I looked at your suggestion, but then wondered if the reader would wonder where the word “crap” came from in the second line if i just said “old stuff” or “old junk” in the first line.
BTW, How’s you’d make out with the teacher when you were in art school? I don’t mean like, did you make out with him, but how did you do? Randy
I hope you don’t invite us for dessert …
Okay – how about the warming up part?
Excellent!!! The story with texture, color and form, nicely done.
You have such a good eye for terse commenting. Thanks. Randy
Best line …” he went Lady Gaga over it”…I’m gonna use that! lol
better check with the Lady first…
This is hilarious! Love the line about the celery. Gosh! I’m STILL chuckling.
I love chuckling. Gosh, I wish I was a carrot stick on your wall… hee-haw.
Inseminating Life On the Planet After Global Warming — who could resist a book or a film or a work of art with a name like that? I’m swooning … I think I might drop my gray mold-covered wooden spatula! Funny stuff, Randy, and I didn’t go to art school.
Ha. Wait. Let me get behind you so that you don’t fall and drop or break that spatula. It’s the key to a new beginning. And as far as art school, maybe you went to acting class?
A perceptive take on a difficult prompt. Funny too. 🙂
And a perceptive comment on a difficult read. Randy
Funny. Imagine what he can produce come spring cleaning time.
Inseminating the Universe…. Randy
All I can say is I’m glad I posted first because your story is excellent. Love the Professor’s name, too.
No, your story is excellent. I insist.
Now just clam up and lick your ick on a stick.
Yes I’m sure there are artists laughing behind our backs… But I’m glad that someone could help you cleaning out all that junk 🙂
ha. good point.
great sense of humor here. truly enjoyed it. 🙂
Thank you. You’re welcome here any time for a laugh. Randy
A true story! Well done.
And a well done true comment. Thank you.
“He went Lady Gaga over it.” my favorite line 🙂
Did you go Lady Gaga over the line?
Dear Randy, Awesome story – I just love it! “Going all Lady Gaga over it!” Hilarious! Very clever and an enjoyable read! Nan 🙂
Thank you, nan. Glad you enjoyed it.
Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder! Love the Lady Gaga play on words.
yes, it is.
My favorite line: He went Lady Gaga over it.
I also like Professor Grin or Bore!
Both made me chuckle.
The whole thing made me chuckle, in fact.
It’s hard to pull off “funny” — you did it pretty effortlessly.
Thank you for your funny comments.
I had fun reading them.
Not everyone can make me smile because of their comments,
but you just did.
PS – I don’t know how effortlessly it was, but I have fun writing them.
Stop by and have a laugh anytime with me…
Keep kitchen renovation it clean with regular cleaning and increase the value
of craftsmanship. There’s nothing that makes me or my wife any madder than a kitchen cabinet.
It’s called the Strive Sink from kitchen renovation Kohler.
You shouldn’t have to look at our business as a whole. Each and
every cupboard should be constructed as well as warranties.
And very soon, we’ll be putting the floors done. I have a friend available to help you out with selection process.
