3WW - Apple Blossoms

Touching - Visible - Stage

A Rothko - Three lines, three words in each, a color in each line in a tic tac toe formation.

White sets stage

Touching pink blush

Spotting visible greens

Nevere heard of a Rothko. Thanks for the explanation. i'm definitely going to try these and have my poetry-writing students try them, too. You did an excellent job with it. Great images even without the picture.

I love how you painted this with just nine words. Without the photo, though, you could be describing a bride who gets caught by her husband flirting with the best man.
