As I mentioned in my first attempts at this, I realized my “slow processing” extended to my creative inspirations. I also find that the harder I try the more I get stuck. Two weeks ago, Jaye posted on “Fresco” and my mind was blank, other than a favorite Italian restaurant, Zios, in our area, that we occasionally visit. How to capture the experience was beyond what I could come up with. I set the word aside and figured I would just do the next word.
Last week’s prompt was “grow.” While many ideas came to mind, how to put them in a visual form didn’t. Amazing by not working on either words, one morning in the shower, the ideas formed and I knew just what I was going to do.
For “fresco” a drawing wouldn’t suffice, and even a picture couldn’t capture what I wanted to convey, but words would. So here they are:

As we are in the midst of winter and bare trees, the thought of spring buds just around the corner inspired this picture:
Join in on Jaye’s prompts. It is a no pressure way to think outside yourself.
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
