Your submissions for the 'moving' edition of Photo Art Friday were amazing! So much artful inspiration and so much generous support for each other. What a great group of people we have frequenting our digital gallery!!!
Emails have come in expressing a lot of enthusiasm for the September 14th PAF prompt of the seven word phrase describing your process as an artist with an accompanying piece of photo art.
However, a couple of you expressed that you felt a bit tentative about the unusual nature of the prompt. So, I thought I would show you a few examples of seven word phrases I came up with to describe my evolution as an 'artist', in hopes that you will see it is not nearly as difficult or intimidating as you may have imagined.
A great motto for this little project is that famous acronym KISS:
:) Of course trying to reduce your artistic journey or perspective down to seven words forces you to keep it simple, doesn't it? :)
As you work developing your seven word sentence you will quickly see that the challenge is to eliminate most of the "I's", "me's", "and's", etc from your phrase. It's a great exercise in learning to be succinct! I'm always too wordy, so this is a great exercise for me! But you already knew that didn't you? :)
So hope that gives you a better perspective on what this week's prompt is asking of you. If you have any questions please post them in the comment section. I will answer you there and everyone can then benefit from the question and answer. There are no stupid questions just as there is no 'stupid' in the acronym kiss ... well on this blog anyway. :)
