February 5 question – Has a single photo or work of art ever inspired a story? What was it and did you finish it?

I have used pieces of art or photos several times over the past several years as a springboard for my writing.

In Storyaday May and September Julie Duffy has used pieces of fine art as the inspirational prompts.

The most recent piece I used was Van Gogh’s Starry Night in a Skillshare Class from Kathy Fish. I like the piece from Kathy’s class. It has more movement in it than some of the other pieces. During the exercise I was also focusing on unexpected descriptions so it was fun to write.

Maybe someday soon you will see that piece published somewhere.

  1. Thank you Tammy for your post. Van Gogh seems to pop up a lot. Have you ever visited his museum in Amsterdam with all his early work on landscapes and daily homely scenes from Holland, pre-impressionist ? Beautiful but darker. Take care, have an inspiring February. I see you are doing the challenge this month. Good luck on posting every day. I’ll be doing the AtoZ in April, this month was too much this year. Maybe I’ll see you soon on the FMFs when I visit. Take care
