100 Word Wednesday: Week 37 – The Art Show


Image Credit Bikurgurl

It was one of those days when the paint wouldn’t paint and the brushes refused to brush.

Yet there before me was death. Staring at me as if to say, I’m ready, are you?

My show was a few days away and the panic to get the work done on time was driving me in its usual way.

There were expectations both my own and others as I needed a successful show as sales meant living on more than tinned spaghetti.

Could I use this image I thought as I took up my brush and felt my familiar motivation return?

    I liked the idea of a skull and death along with a poor frustrated artist surviving on tinned pasta.

    Excellent perspective – the push and the drive to the end. So very deep — and touches where I’ve been with my online writing these days — writing offline and pushing through my own stuff to get back to regularly posting my writing on my blog. It’s obviously not about money for me, but that insatiable drive is daunting. Wonderful story, as always — thank you for joining us again this week 🙂
