This artwork is of an apple. It started out as a colored pencil drawing (which was partially traced from a photograph of a real apple). After that rubbing alcohol was used to blend the colors. A little more colored pencil was applied, then it was scanned and just slightly computer altered.
This artwork can inspire poetry. Some ideas include:
- Poems about apples. This is obvious, but the idea could be extended to include various apple products such as apple juice, cider, sauce, butter, etc.
- Poems about hunger. This apple is a picture of food. It could inspire a poet to write about someone without food.
- Poems about alcohol use. This drawing was altered using alcohol (albeit rubbing alcohol). A poet could take this idea and write a poem about a person who is altered by alcohol (the drinking kind).
- Poems about things that are red. This apple is red and things can sometimes be described as apple red. A poet could write about things that have this color.
