Prompts for RWJ, Prompt 173


Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Luncheon Of The Boating Party (1881)

This is inspired by the French movie, Amélie, which referenced Renoir’s painting. In the movie, the protagonist, Amélie, seemed to be a projection of the girl holding the wine glass because she’s basically in her own bubble. Actually, as it turned out, every character in it is wrapped in their own bubble. Mr Dufayel, her neighbor, for one, drew Renoir’s painting every year. In the cafe that she worked, the lady who manned the cigarette counter was wrapped up in her allergies. A regular customer sat at the same table across from her counter day after day. Her father and a lady neighbor were both wrapped up grieving their departed spouses. Amelie met a man who looked for discarded photos at photo booths every day and pieced them inside a photo album. We repeat, you guys. Repetition is key. So what sort of dream is your character wrapped up in? Write about that.
