Summer Writing Exercise Series #24: Rob Gonsalves at the Beach

For today's writing exercise you will write a piece of poetry or prose which is inspired by the following piece of art: Pursuit of Balance by the amazing surrealist Rob Gonsalves

Many options here from the converging scenes that Gonsalves is famous for. It can be focused on the scenery or the person viewing the scenery. You can write this from the perspective of the boy or someone viewing the scene, whether a random person, the young man as an older adult, a omniscient narrator, whatever you'd like. I adore Gonsalves' work and someday I'll own a print of my own.


If you would like some music to write to, try Ani DiFranco's album "Not a Pretty Girl".
