Leap into another world – ART FOR WRITERS

The_Last_Hours_of_Pompei_MichaelSowaNo, I’m not going to say anything. You’re on your own for this one. It’s whatever you want it to be.
Just write.
Make yourself  write if you’re out of your comfort zone (and remember Terry Pratchett’s wise words about fantasy writing that I published last Sunday).
I will reveal the title of the painting though. It’s called The Last Hours of Pompeii. You can call it something else…
It is the work of German born artist Michael Sowa. In addition to painting, he has illustrated a number of books, provided the art work for major magazines like The New Yorker and for the covers of several musical albums. If you saw the 2001 film Amélie it was his art on the walls that came to life…
There, that helps, doesn’t it?

      Sorry, but for some reason that I do not understand, your comment has only now come to my attention (meaning maybe it was there all along and I didn’t spot it…or maybe WordPress did something strange & quirky).

      Don’t know how I rescued you, but I’m glad I did.
