Two Things Challenge – Poetic/Prosaic
Some of our most faithful readers and commenter’s are very active in the 2 Things Challenge. The deal is that anyone can participate and enter your own entry. This week the challenge is Poetic and Prosaic in one image. I think this is poetic … and that chunk of rock is prosaic. I have started to join in on some of the different challenges that blogs sponsor to network and connect more with other artists. So this is my second 2 Things Challenge.

This is an addition since I have been great feedback. This font is my font I use for the business … how do you like the font signature?

At the request of people, I have made another few samples.

That rock is indeed prosaic! I myself have noticed on my visits to the seaside that you often get the poetry of the sea broken up by barriers, rocks and other pieces of wood. However, in England there is an artist Anthony Gormley (who made The Angel In The North) who did a series of artworks of wooden figures of himself (like the bits of wood that you find unaccountably sticking up in the sea) placed around the low tide. An interesting contrast, like one person facing up to the power and poetry of the natural world.
I like your signature in this one. It is a good signature and I think you should stick with it.
Wow, what a great entry for the two things challenge. I love it, love it, love it. Also the signature is great!
I am catching my plane so…very quickly: this time, I think you need to place your signture on the lower left side in a lighter color…sorry…gotta go to the airport now.. take care. hugs, my dear
well, maybe its a european vs american thing, but i like it on the right in a lighter color, using the font in the bottom image. can you put the signature closer to the edge?
i like the bottom image, even maybe using a little lighter for the sig
I guess I get to make a comment too. I think that if you are concerned about them finding me, the font is clearer. But the actual signature is friendlier.

I like the green signature, second down from the top. 🙂
Great challenge! This looks great! I prefer the last signature, I guess it all depends on each individuals taste!

Hi, Diane. My two cents worth: I like the green signature in the lower right corner. I suppose it could be a little smaller, but I prefer the way it blends in a little more than the bright signatures you have farther down. I mean, we want to know who the artist is, of course. It must be signed. But the work is not about the signature, and the bright signing draws too much attention to itself, suddenly we are more immersed in “Diane Clancy” than we are in the flowing art above.
There seems to be some additions since I last read your post! I am not an artist but I like the simple lettering light coloured signature. Because it is simple it does not detract from anything and because it is light you can see it against the picture.
I definitely like the “signature”, and on the left side (right side if facing), but can’t decide on the color.
Good luck, WWAO chick! 🙂
Hi Everyone, I am absorbing what you are all saying … thank you so much!! You are really helping me decide. Thank you,
