March 22, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story using the theme “follow your dreams.” Bonus points for throwing a badge into the tale. Go where the prompt leads.
From an early age, he started drawing things. He showed a liking for patterns.
As he grew, he played more and more with line and form.
When his schooling was over, he had decided to become an artist.
He worked on his craft, he was invited to exhibit his work. He found a market, a worldwide one.
He discovered his choice of colour, his blue and white.
Today he follows his dream, lives off his art when he doesn’t need to borrow from his dad.
Soon he will travel the world, firstly to Singapore to display his beautiful work.
Its not exactly a badge but a sample of his work.

Is this a true story Michael, it’s a great story that rings true. Your son maybe?
is that mosaic or painting … very nice!
He uses acrylic pens Kate what you see is a picnic rug a company has printed his design onto. It’s very useful when gkids come because they sit and eat from it and later I hose it clean
wow sounds like the ideal picnic blanket, hose it clean! I do love the design, it’s very attractive … thanks for sharing.
What a fantastic design. Thanks for the sight of a beauty that is so simple and yet so complex.
Thanks so much. You might be surprised to know that he has a mural on the side of a building in Miami somewhere.
A lovely piece, Michael. I see your son and his work in it.
Thanks for sharing Michael, I can see why his artwork is being sought.
Thanks Susan I appreciate your comment.
How lovely is that Michael. Congratulations on having such a talented son 🙂
Thanks so much I appreciate your kind wishes
I saw it as a true story and your son? is very talented. You are right to be proud of him. It comes through in your flash.
Yes Irene my boy. He’s taken me on a wonderful journey.
Congratulations. He may have taken you on a wonderful journey Michael but he wouldn’t have been able to do it without your support and encouragement.
Thanks so much Irene, yes he does call me and we chat about one thing and another, as he gets older he is appreciating what his dad does for him.
It is funny what a difference age makes to appreciation.
I think its called mellowing….
or finally understanding.
He’s as talented with blue and white as his dad is with 99 words! I hope you can read him some of your stories from that picnic blanket. Wonderful BOTS, Michael!
Thanks so much Charli.
