Prompt 10, March 6, 2016

When Henri Matisse was in his older years he wasn’t physically able to continue painting.  The artist instead cut out elements for collage using large scissors. Matisse called it painting with scissors. In a lot of ways that is what life is like; we take individual elements and create the collage of our daily lives.

The prompt this week is about that idea of what element(s) in your day makes it a good one. I am sure Matisse’s days were not without pain, yet he continued. Our days may not be perfect, but the elements that make up our days can be good.

In honor of Matisse’s creative spirit: “What elements of your day make it a good one?” Or phrased in another way, “What events in your day makes you happy or appreciative?”



Le Gerbe  Henri Matisse
