# 300 Writing Prompts # art

Writing Prompt Thursday : Art

Sometimes a question seems hard when you first read it and it turns out that it's super easy. Ready for this week's question? I am. I love these weekly prompts!

What is your favorite piece of art? What do you love about it?

I want to start out by showing you some of my favorites. Then, I'll tell you all about why I love them so much.

This is the wall behind my table in my studio/office. Every one of these pieces were done by Nick Davis (yep, co-author of The Tether Saga) and all but the bottom right corner one is an original. Why do I love them so much? Well, that's easy but has multiple parts:

  • Nick just happens to be one of my closest and favorite people on the planet.
  • I seriously just love his drawing style. He's switched over to digital art now which looks great, but nothing can take the place of a hand drawn and colored piece for me. 
  • He sold these to help raise funds in his custody battles for his children even. Even though he loved the pieces, he loves those kids more and how can anyone not love that?
  • Some of my all time favorite characters are on this wall: Paddington, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, Tristan...
There's another larger piece that doesn't show in this picture that has to be included in my favorites list. It was a surprise birthday gift a couple of years ago and I can't help but smile whenever I see it. These are all hung right in front of where my laptop sits when I'm working in this room. Whenever I get stuck, I can just look up and remember how much Nick and others believe in me and how strong he's had to be to keep his own journey happening. I'm surrounded by amazing creators and all of this inspires me to keep going.

What's your favorite piece of art? I'd love to see it!
