The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#1187]

This is such a stretch for a connection to Britain, I can hardly believe I'm writing about it, but it's just the best thing.....This is a rendering done during the 18-month planning process that took place before the Andy Warhol Bridge in Pittsburgh became the site a very large yarn bombing on Monday.  Fan art?  Heck yeah, for fans of bridges, community spirit, knitting, public art.....and I love this simple, expressive rendering.  No wonder the knitters were able to sell the city on the idea.  British?  I don't know, I imagine Andy Warhol spent at least one night in London at some point.....
