Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 5

September 6, 2015 – Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 5

Along with good poetry, I love good art. I found an amazing site where Serena Malyon/Artcyclopedia used a technique called Tilt-Shift on Van Gogh’s paintings. Instead of the viewer seeing the entire piece of art as it was painted, Serena ‘shifted’ the viewer perspective to a selected section of the painting making it crisp and clear with the other parts slightly out of focus. The results are stunning. Using the Tilt-Shift version  of The Starry night created by Serena Malyon write to your heart’s content. Choose the tilt-shift section or another part…or, write about your impression of this technique. Remember you are in charge of your words, there is no ‘right or wrong’ with this process other than to have FUN!

You have until Sunday, September 13, 2015 to share your writing. For those new to this challenge, please read the particulars under the third tab that says “read first” https://annieswritingchallenge.wordpress.com/writing-outside-the-lines/

So … here is Serena Malyon’s wonderful Tilt-Shift rendition of Van Gogh’s The Starry Night …

  1. Imitation

    Likely possessed
    By insanity…
    Cutting off his own ear
    Yet Vincent created
    Art for the ages…
    Like most artists
    Unrecognized
    In his time…
    Now revered
    By the masses
    Who today
    In our time
    Would still
    Pass him by

    Painting’s
    Tradition
    Of imitation
    Has its
    Limitations
    Genius…
    However flawed
    Outshines the work
    Of a machine
    So imitation
    Can’t always be seen
    As the sincerest
    Form of flattery

    Having visited the Van Gogh Museum at Paulus Potterstraat 7, 1071 CX Amsterdam, Netherlands, and seen the real deal, digital manipulations can’t compare.

  2. Just out of reach…in the deepest recess of my mind, I see them.
    Floating on the horizon. My vision is blurred, unclear.. But they can’t hide their light.
    Dancing and swirling in the night sky. I want to dance with them, but I can’t.. Not yet. But I will some day. Adding my own bright colors, blending with theirs.. So close..reaching out my hand.. So close..yet…. Soon
