June 28, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that is a sketch or about a sketch. It can be “A Sketch of a Romance” or “The Sketch of Aunt Tillie.” Go where the prompt leads you to scribble.
For the cost, I questioned the purpose of the exhibition. A well known nineteenth century artist, his etchings, his scribbles all collected, cleaned up and placed in exhibition.
As I walked around the gallery, I thought of someone going into his studio and picking up the scribbles off the floor. I’m sure it was more a money making venture than any testament to his artistic ability.
The irony of all this was that next door an exhibition by an equally famous Japanese artist was free, inter-active and far more breath-taking.
I felt well and truly ripped off that day.
