This Week's Prompt

Three more collages. The first two are photos I took and I think the third is a Dover image. The second is a photo from the campground we go to in Wells, N.Y. (Where we were this past weekend and believe it or not.....NO RAIN!!!!!)

I have spent virtually the whole day putting hardware and labels on collages for the show next week. I am vowing right here and now not to let collages pile up again without putting that stuff on them when I do them. It would be so much easier to put it on 2 or 3 at a time than spending the whole day doing it. This is NOT the fun part of art work. Oh, well. I'm almost done.

The prompt for this week goes along with the quote for today. I read an interesting novel while camping and the quote is from there, so thought I'd pair it with a prompt. -- Think of or write down your name. Your first name. Now think of what the name says to you. What does it say about you? Do you think that you'd be the same person you are now if you had a different name? Now either do art or write about your name.

"There are cultures in which it is believed that a name contains all a person's mystical power. That a name should be known only to God and to the person who holds it and to a very few privileged others." from the novel The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

You use the most wonderful quotes in your collages. Love them all. This prompt is very curious. Would I still be Kerri if I wasn't named Kerri????
