FFfAW – Unusual Canvas

Marcie is an artist. She always wanted to be an artist of a different kind. She didn't want to be one of the “run of the mill” artists. One day she came driving up to my house to pick me up in her magnificent piece of art. Her car!

We drove all over town showing off her “work of art.”

Marcie entered her car into the Gallery of Modern Art and sold it for a cool $100,000.

She has become a famous modern artist, painting cars for wealthy people. We fondly remember her first big canvas, a 1962 Ford Fairlane.


Thank you S. Writing for our photo prompt this week!

  1. That car certainly has a lot more personality than your run-of-the-mill factory car today. Tell Marcie I’d like one, too. Fun little story πŸ™‚

  2. Wonderful story, Joy! Marcie certainly is a fantastic artist. The car is so unique and the colors are really outstanding. It was probably hard for her to sell it after putting in so much work on it, but who could resist that kind of price! I hope she put her signature on it somewhere. I would accept it right away, and perhaps consider painting another one .

    • Thank you so much, Jessie! Yes, she is using cars as her canvas now and it is how she is making her living. They would definitely be hard to sell after so much work, but she’s got to eat and pay bill! LOL!

  3. Very cute story PJ. I can picture your main character riding around town in this beautifully painted car. It would fun to do and to be noticed because of the artwork on the car. Selling her first piece of artwork for $100, 000, sounds like a wonderful start for Marcie’s career. Great write!

  4. I have a friend that painted her white van with her artwork. She gets a tremendous amount of people asking about her van and her work. Your work of fiction has a realistic edge. Nicely done, PJ. 😍
    If time allows I’d like to put a story together but it’s been a bit hectic. I always enjoy your prompts.

    • I imagine her van is wonderful and I’m sure she does get a lot of comments about it. I would love for you to participate in the challenge. I understand about time constraints.

  5. OMG that car is awesome!! You paint such a fun picture driving all over town showing off her creation, I could just imagine it in my head, and I laughed out loud thinking about it. Very creative and I love that she entered the car into the Gallery of Modern Art and won!! πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
