Julia’s prompt for the 100 word challenge this week is …. the line was drawn …. here is my take
The line was drawn. There was no margin for error; the sea’s horizon must be perfectly horizontal. A grand leap of faith was needed to move me from the penciled line into the heart of the painting. I envisioned the role of the waves, a scene filled with light and salty air; with the soft swishing sound of shore grasses rippling in the breeze. My mission was to translate the vision and capture it on paper, translated through strokes of a brush. I grasped the brush dripping with water, and leapt, sweeping it boldly across the paper and beyond the point of no return.
