Creation Myth # 12

Two for Damyanti Ghosh, who requested image prompts. Survey her work at This drawing is of my niece, McKenzie Jones, when she was a teen-ager. Not so long ago…


At one time I was putting up new images every thursday as prompts for writers. Those prompts are still up and available. They are archived – along with the collaborations – at

This second image is from a scroll of creation myths. This was the first in the series. The size is about 3.5′ x 4′, acrylic lay-in finished with oil glazes on printed linen (image painted on the reverse where the bleed of pattern became a more subtle background).

If you write something be sure to leave a comment and a link back to your work so others can enjoy it also!

    Damyanti, I’ll check it out now. I love your multiplicity of sites and blogs. Glad you are still going strong.

    Hi Rick,
    Thanks for your visit, and I did get quite carried away by the picture, did’t I….hope your niece does not mind :)…the person I wrote about is not her, but Anna Williams, the latest inmate of the madhouse I call my head!
