Artistic Interpretations with Margaret - Color it...

Sherwin Williams
Welcome to Artistic Interpretations.  Imagine being the one naming all the paint colors Sherwin Williams offers!  Perhaps the next best thing is to write a poem using these creative names.

The challenge is to use 5 names from the "fan decks" below and write a new poem.  The paint chips are randomly selected by me but please click on the names if you want to see the colors not represented with a square of color.  (I have linked every name below a color square to an internet link)

Perhaps the names themselves will inspire, perhaps the color.  It is wide open to interpretation.  You are NOT restricted to staying with one paint chip - there are 3 - 4 colors on each strip.  You may mix and match...  just use at least five names below.

Note (I don't mean to make this complicated)  If the name of the paint color uses the "color" - for example - Plie Pink - you can opt to NOT use the word "pink" and just "plie" in your poem.  It is up to you.

I prefer a new poem, however, you may re-work an old poem - sometimes past poems benefit with a bit of a facelift.

Please sign up with Mr. Linky below and be sure to visit and comment on the other poetry.  Thank you, and I look forward to your Artistic Interpretations!

This is a wonderful prompt idea! Thank you, Margaret.

Laura Bloomsbury said...

thank you Margaret for bringing some colour into our poetry with this prompt - think I managed to avoid purple prose!

Jim said...

A fun little write that almost got big on me. How do you mention five colors in one writing? I used six. I also avoided prose. But that (plus some say the prose should be true) kept it from being a Haibun.

This is intriguing, Margaret. Very cool.

Thanks for including MyPerfectColor in your list -- we love it! And if you ever need to grab images from us, there is a link at the bottom of every color page labeled "Link to this Color" that makes it easy to get the HTML code to use. Happy Thursday!

Delightful prompt Margaret! I have a stack of paint color chips on my desk I use from time to time for color description ideas. It's a wonderful resource. I was able to use 9!
