Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Creative Prompt #2 – The secret life of the Mona Lisa

This week’s Lee Sargent “creative prompt” is “The secret life of the Mona Lisa”. As Lee wrote in his weekly prompt email: “You know what the painting looks like; just go away and write a short play about what she does when she’s not posing for paintings!” Well, I didn’t go for a short play (and the prompts are intended to allow you to take whatever creative approach in whatever medium or art form you want), but I had to stop and think about what might be a fitting spare time occupation for the owner of one of the most famous faces in history.

I haven’t quite carried this off as well as I’d imagined it in my mind, but it’s clear enough to convey what I wanted, I think.

[Production notes: initial pencil sketch, inked with Artline 200 0.4mm black pen, scanned to computer, and Da Vinci himself supplied the remaining finishing touches via Pixelmator.]
