What Happens When You Mix the Inventor of the Cinquain Poem, a Thesaurus & Eleanor Roosevelt?

Adelaide2This is one of my favorite projects for AEDM2012 yet.

Parts of this have been sitting, loose and floppy, and now she is all…. Done! The frame was a completely boring, faded brown – which I painted and then textured. The image Adelaide1is of Adelaide Crapsey, who invented the cinquain form of poetry atop an image of a Thesaurus page which is atop some dictionary pages. Alongside Adelaide are one inch circle cut outs from an essay by Eleanor Roosevelt.

The page with Eleanor’s speech was used in a writing camp session – you can tell by the Adelaide3circled words. One of the women at a past writing camp used those words to prompt her writing, so the energy from women across the generations just leaps from this simple piece of art.

Tell me about the energy in your current creative projects, please!
