Artwork to inspire poetry: apple

Apple

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.
