    resized.jpg I call this Springtime on a country road. It is a photo I took myself, not a painting, but feel free to use it if you like

    This is also a photo that I took as we traveled through a storm in the mountains. It is photoshop'd to have characteristics like a painting. Feel free to use it if you like.

    I would like a theme resounding around death/lies/secrets, I think seeing the response would be pretty cool for that, and if you do it, it would be fun to participate in!

    I was trying to find a picture that might fit with your theme, but struggled to find something tasteful...

    So how about Tunnel Vision which might be expanded to include themes of death, lies and secrets?

    So @theoriginalmonsterman - that is 2 votes for Tunnel Vision for the next one (@gibble410 ), will this happen?

    I had a spark of inspiration just a moment ago and have just finished writing my Tunnel Vision poem. It's already to go... ;)

    I also like this picture because it shows inferiority and yet superiority at the same time.

    Oh,@Choco Leche gave me another idea from one of the above pics!

    Theme suggestion: Summit

    Meaning: "Although originally meant to describe a meeting between the heads of state, summit can be used to describe any gathering of people who care deeply about the same topic ... Moreover, while summit also means the very top of a mountain, summit can be used metaphorically to mean a variety of heights, such as the summit of a career, an industry, or any kind of major effort."

    Here's a picture that I finished drawing only yesterday. It doesn't really even have a title yet. I just thought, maybe I could title it with the name of a poem written about it.
    Anyhoo, whether used or not, hope you like it.
