Texture. Color. Form.: Friday Fictioneer’s Art Class

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.

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
    You’re funny!
    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.
      Thanks
      PS – I don’t know how effortlessly it was, but I have fun writing them.

      Stop by and have a laugh anytime with me…

  4. 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.

Have some fun...
