Collectif Creativity: 23Oct2022

By Bobi Leutschaft Poitras

I once saw a documentary about a man who painted Van Gogh replicas on pinheads. It fascinated me!

I thought I’d try something small so I bought a magnifier with a light, and used a paintbrush with all but a few bristles cut off.

I’ve done small details before, but never an entire painting this size. Lots of fun!

[Ed. note: the pink background is Bobi’s hand. This is a teeny-tiny painting!]

Collectif members, share your impulses — no effort too small!

Send JPG image(s) to with about 100 words per image describing what you did, materials used, inspiration, challenges, mindset, etc. 

Share how/if creativity affects (controls?) your life. Please include size (height by width), title & media for each image.

Writers – we want to hear from you! Send poetry, lyrics, an excerpt. Try to include an image of some sort because that’s the media world we live in. 

Everyone, share informative, inspiring Show & Tell demonstrating the creative mind.
