Dilation Exercise for March 2009

As I mentioned in a previous blog, Alan Clark is running the monthly Dilation Exercise Contests. This month I will be joining him with my own Dilation Exercise. I hope this will be a fun work out for your imagination and I encourage you to participate with comments. If you come back to the blog and can't find this post, look for it in the "Dilation Contest" label.  

Please look at the picture and imagine for it a one sentence caption of dialog and a one sentence caption of narrative.  Write these down and transmit the sentences to me via the comments option at the bottom of this post.  Try to produce captions that compliment the image without overly defining what's going on in the picture.  It helps if the captions suggest something beyond the picture plane.  For examples of these captioned images and more information about this project  and contest, go to Imagination Work Out and Contest.

The title of this painting  is not important here.  More important is what happens in your imagination when you view the image.  What's going on here?

As Alan does with his contest, I will choose my favorite of the captions offered for the March '09 Dilation Exercise and declare a winner on or about the 31st of March, 2009. The winner will have the image with his or her caption and name entered into the “Dilation Exercise” album in the coppermine gallery on my web site. The winner will win an 8" x 10" matted print of the contest image.  It will be necessary to have the winner's shipping address in order to deliver the print.  Sorry, but the print prize will only be delivered to an address within the continental United States.

His first thought was how creeped out he got each Halloween when he reached into the moist cavity to pull out the slimy seeds.

"Guess what those are for, Big Bob?" snickered the nasty little pumpkin next to him.
Bob didn't have to guess at all.

I apologize for the delay in announcing the winner for the March Dilation contest. This was not a fun week to say the least. :-)

The winner is Morbideus.

Thank all of you for participating.

And I will be posting the contest for April this evening.
