Artwork to inspire poetry: oil and spices

oil and spices

This artwork was made in a somewhat unique way.  It was made by adding paprika and cinnamon to vegetable oil, stirring it, and then sprinkling turmeric on top.  A photograph was taken, and the image was cropped and computer altered to give the artwork above.

This artwork can inspire a number of poetry ideas.  Some ideas include:

  • The artwork looks like something that might be in a pool of a cave or in a hot spring pool. A poet could write about that.
  • The artwork has the look of something that might be on another planet. A poet could use that for an idea.
  • The artwork looks very different than the original work. This could inspire poetry.
  • The artwork looks like something that might be found in a petri dish. This could inspire poetry.
