Day 60 – We’re Already Here?

The artist belongs to his work, not the work to the artist. – Novalis

One of my life’s greatest mysteries is how the creative process works, how suddenly a tree appears on a blank piece of sketch paper, how swirls become the leaves on the tree, how something is created from the depths of my mind, my vision. Or, with photography, how my mind’s eye seems to know where to draw focus, how to capture that image framed by my vision, without really being aware. It just happens. Art simply becomes. A picture is born.

For today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture, I was inspired by … I really don’t know! It just happened. 🙂 Can you guess?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 59)

When I showed my 10-year-old son yesterday’s picture, he asked what it was and I told him. He had no clue what this object was intended for, and I wasn’t surprised. After all, I’m sure the majority of us are spoiled by a washer and dryer. But way back when, before these technological advancements, women had to hand wash clothes (sometimes in creeks and lakes), probably with handmade soap (I know my grandma made hers), with this ancient artifact: an old washboard. Here are a couple of different perspectives of the washboard. (Can you imagine doing laundry with this? I cannot!)

  1. I have no idea what it is, possibly a close up of an opal? I am not good at guessing things, but I think it is a gorgeous image!! It sparks mental pleasure for me. 🙂 Beautiful!

  2. Ok, so I’d be uspset if I crumbled it, but you do put it on something. Humm.. Do you put it on something to show it off, like a shelf?
