Fire Up Your Brain With Another Story

September 26, 2011
How might you use this painting to resolve a problem or stimulate your creativity?


We’re in London seeing as many things as we can squeeze in before we leave on Thursday.


Riders in the southwest

In What Story Would You Tell About This Picture? I gave you a painting by the same artist who painted this picture and suggested you could use it to “fire up your brain.”

One way you can use the picture is to apply the Step Into Pictures technique to help you see some aspect of an issue that lies between you and another person; one that you may not have understood before. To do this, you:

  • Think about a situation you want resolved between you and another person.
  • Imagine you step into the picture, with or without that person.
  • What would you say?
  • What would you do?
  • If the other person is with you, what do you think he or she might say or do?
  • Let your mind be open to what might happen.
The other thing you can do is to tell a story about this picture by Lynne Fearman, which is titled simply “Riders.”
  • What does the title mean to you?
  • What does the scene say to you?
  • What do you think happened before you saw this
  • What do you think will happen next?
Gets your brain cells working, doesn’t it?In about a month, after I’ve returned from my vacation, I’ll give you another painting (or perhaps a photo I’ve taken on my trip) to see how you can again expand your brain’s creativity.

  1. I enjoy reading your posts. I was going to ask how sailing in Maine was? Now I read you are in London. Can’t keep up with you, but will try by continuing to read your blog.
