As most of you know I have an absolute love for art. Todays prompt has been inspired by the Australian Artist John Olsen. I have taught John Olsen in my classroom many times and thought that his artworks could be your inspiration for a poem.
John Olsen was born in 1928 in New South Wales (the state I live). He has traveled across the world and extensively throughout Australia. In the 1950s, Olsen's work moved from abstract to figurative and recognisable forms, where his brush "danced and walked rapidly across the canvas." In his work, Olsen provided a new interpretation to the Australian scene, redefining landscapes from ground level to an aerial perspective, thus creating the horizon-less landscape.
Here is your prompt! select one of of John Olsen's artworks from below and write a poem. I don't mind what the poem is about, so long as it was inspired by the artwork.
1. Sydney Sun
2. Five Bells
