I know I haven’t posted one of these in a while. My schedule has been pretty busy, and my blog has been sparse as a result. I promise I’m trying to get back on schedule, though! Here’s this week’s Fantasy Art Wednesday, where fun fantasy artwork is combined with a writing prompt to get your creative juices flowing.
Two ethereal figures emerge from a pool of still water. Slow and solemn, they seem to be more of the spirit world than the one of solid stone they are now traversing. Where have they come from, and where are they going? Is there a secret world hidden beneath the murky water? Or is this pair part of a ghostly legend, their appearance coinciding with a certain date, or time of day? If you blink, will they disappear, leaving no trace that they were ever here?
One thought on “Fantasy Art Wednesday”
As soon as I saw them my first thought was a question, “Are they unaware of the water, or indifferent to it?” For me there’s a real question about whether these beings perceive our world around them, and simply ignore it, or if they in fact represent something that exists on another level, and has no idea that we can perceive them because they cannot perceive us.
There’s an idea, a ghost story where the ghosts can’t “see” the people. Maybe it’s mutual blindness, or maybe humans can see but the ghosts can’t. The ghosts could still be powerful, dangerous, but unable to directly see the living.
