I’m going back to the world of art to do a response to Crimson’s Creative Challenge #142
El Condor Pasa
“Here’s your study for today.”
Art student: “I have to paint that!”
Tutor: “Easy peasy.”
“But it’s so bleak!”
“Then add some interest. A fence, a river, a bird even. Create! Go wild with that brush.”
“If you say so…” He grabs a brush and starts dabbing.
After the last brush stroke, he calls his tutor over.
“How’s this? Ready for the Louvre?”
Tutor: “Um… Definitely unique.”
“I’m calling it, ‘EL CONDOR PASA’.”
“Looks like a robin hunting caterpillars.”
“Robin? Caterpillars! Ouch! We artists are sensitive people you know.”
“Yeah. So I’m here to toughen you up before the critics start firing their big guns. Try again…aim for something more abstract.”
The student grumbles, sets his masterpiece aside and sets another canvas on the easel. Splash, splash goes the brush.
“Definitely better! You’ll be a Van Gogh yet.”
