Let’s have some fun while exercising our creativity…
Every month on the 5th I will be making a “Creative Challenge” post. Those post will be comprised of a series of prompts (with a link to their sources). I will allow myself to be inspired by the prompts that I have generated; I will create at least one piece (but hopefully several) with any medium/media of my choosing.
I invite you reader, to take a moment to generate some prompts to inspire yourself from the random generators I have selected. Or if one I have chosen for myself tickles your fancy, go ahead, let it guide you… I won’t mind…
I will post my creations on My Artwork/Portfolio site, and will create a link here. Please, if you upload your creation to your blog or website, share it with us so we can post a link!
ADDENDUM: A rule I give myself… It will always be possible to use a prompt generated for a previous month to create art as long as at least 1 prompt from the current month is used as well.

This gentleman puts you in mind of a sensitive artist. He has large brown eyes that are like two bronze coins. His thick, curly, lemon-yellow hair is neck-length and is worn in an utilitarian, dignified style. He has an elegant build. His skin is cream-colored. He has a low forehead and prominent ears. His wardrobe is risque and mysterious, with a mostly black color scheme.
