Untangling reflections with a blog prompt



Blogging can be simple or complex. Finding blog ideas and topics may simply take a little unraveling of our own ideas or musings.

Maybe this painting by 19th Century French artist Gustave Courbet illustrates this concept.



What thoughts and writing ideas does this image suggest to you? Here are a few blog prompt keywords to get you started.

tangles
tracings
tresses

Use any or all of these prompt words. Include the art, if you wish. (Be sure to copy and use the artist information – below.)

When you publish your blog post on your own site, please consider including a link back to Simply Snickers, if you use the prompt and/or artwork. Then c’mon back with a comment and a link to your post.

Improvise with this blog prompt


Having recently toured a traveling art exhibit of the paintings of Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, I thought I’d select one of his pieces for this blog prompt.

Take a look at Kandinsky’s Improvisation 9.



What do you see? What ideas does this bring to mind? Does it jump-start your creativity for writing something for your own blog site? 

Here are the blog prompts:

The works of Wassily Kandinsky (1866 – 1944) demonstrated elements of several artistic genres, including Expressionism, Fauvism, Abstract. What’s your favorite?
