Creative Prompt Response #217: Pen

What else could it be but a fountain pen? Have you used a fountain pen? I have. They are an experience. They create individual words – well, the act of using a fountain pen is a creative experience that makes the words look individual. It is a terrible or wonderful experience. Terrible if you run out of ink or your cartridge malfunctions and you get ink all over your hands, paper, desk….you get the idea. Wonderful if your pen flows beautifully.

I have a couple of fountain pens, but none that are scarlet and gold. I do have cartridges with turquoise and emerald ink. I see fountain pens on MassDrop all the time, so they must be coming back into fashion.

I am thinking about picking up a fountain pen again just to see how rosy my memory of using one is.

This drawing is a little bit simple, but I was bold with the color.

Take a look at the original prompt. Then draw, color, paint, dance or sing your own response. Be inspired.

Then, post the direct URL (link) where your drawing, doodle, artwork is posted (e.g. your blog, Flickr) in the comments area of this post. I would really like to keep all the artwork together and provide a way for others to see your work and/or your blog.

We are also talking about this on Twitter. Use the hashtag #CPP

The Creative Prompt Project, also, has a Flickr group, which you can join to  post your responses. I created this spot so those of you without blogs and websites would have a place to post your responses.
