“A work of art was once a work in progress!” ~ Adele Leon
This weekend over on our other site https://weeklyprompts.com the Photo Challenge is Work of Art. We suggested our readers interpret this in a way that is unique to them, after all, a work of art to one person is not necessarily so for the next! Here are my own responses to the challenge.
After my daughter and family moved into my house, we extended, reconfigured and divided, and to accommodate our different needs the oil-fired central heating system was re-designed to create zones. To utilise the existing space I suggested we make the outside boiler room accessible from my new kitchen, and I would use it as a laundry room.
The end wall of the boiler room remained in its original state, untouched and shabby (the son-in-law has promised to improve the decor here!). One day a different heating engineer arrived to carry out additional work, and I apologised for the unfinished messy room. His eyes lit up, and his face broke into a smile, “Don’t apologise, this is a work of art!” And, believe it or not, although not shown here, there’s much more to this!
The next photo is an adorable work of art, and in more ways than one. Here my second daughter Louisa uses her photographic talent to show off her beautiful two-year-old daughter Lily-Jane.
Below I showcase my youngest daughter’s work of art. Having accompanied me for hospital treatment, Sophie kept herself busy by using an iPad App to paint copies of pictures that were hanging on the waiting room wall.
Next is my own effort at digital painting which I’m sure you will agree is highly unlikely to be described as a work of art! Nevertheless, this was fun and quite therapeutic!
