Write Around PAM: Théo Van Rysselberghe

Théo Van Rysselberghe’s painting beautifully captures the summertime: a beach at sunset. Step into this scene with us today, and take a moment to rest. Soak in the colors of the sky, hear the ocean waves, feel the sand between your toes and the breeze on your face. And then, take a few minutes to write down what you notice, so you can transport yourself back whenever you want a little boost of summer magic. We also invite you to come see this work in person at the Museum and take a moment to write with it there.

We have two prompts to help you get started. As always, you can use one, both, or write whatever else comes. Just set a timer for 10 minutes and keep your pen or pencil moving.

Walking on sand… / At the end of the day…

Writing in community is powerful. We are grateful to our longtime partner Write Around Portland for the writing prompts and inspiration. You can revisit past Sunday posts and look for continuing weekly posts through the year. Please share your work with us!  @writearoundpdx @portlandartmuseum #RespectWritingCommunity #WriteAroundPAM
