Notebooking Daily Exercise July 17, 2014

July 17: Picture yourself.

Today do a google search (not bing, we're looking for results here) for your first name followed by the word painting. Click to view all the images and look for an interesting picture. For more unusual names it may be a little easier to find an interesting painting. If you have a popular name like Jessica, you'll have a lot of portraits of people, but just scroll through and you will find something--for instance there's a couple interesting portraits of Jessica Rabbit from the classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Write a piece which either:

a) you imagine yourself the subject/in the scene
b) imagine yourself as the artist obsessed with this particular piece
c) the painting appears briefly, but works as a metaphor, coming up at least twice in the story/poem
d) this painting is going to auction and for some reason, you have to have it, but why? How does the auction go?
