The DP prompt is THRESHOLD. My photo entry is a picture from the art room.
Sitting in the art room we find some “primed” donated items on the “threshold” of becoming customized works of art!
This photo has some off angled window light coming in – as the day was over, the room was now clean, and students went home – and I was on the threshold of enjoying a quiet evening….
Also- here is van Gogh’s “Old Man in Sorrow” Threshold painting- and a few of his drawings with a threshold kind of mood.
“Threshold” Poem (about van Gogh) by Y. Prior
There’s an old saying – “everything happens for a reason”
– and that life “HAS to have difficult seasons”
It’s how we grow –
quiet the soul.
some hardships take a toll…
while God is always in control
when Van Gogh toiled with those that mined coal
There was no way he would ever know…
What was in store…
what God would bestow….
how setback would lead to an art door –
nice and slow….
He was fired from the coal mines for caring too much??
Accused of having an overzealous touch!
What was up with those religious Dutch?
How dare they judge – and put down serving as such!
They missed van Gogh’s caring heart –
But it had to happen – so he could make his ART!
The early drawings, inspired by Millet –
represent the threshold – of art we cherish today!
…900 works and a wounded ear.
…800 letters while pushing on each year!
Everything happens for a reason- it’s true
And you dear reader – are on a threshold too
God has great things in store for you…
