I stumbled on this painting recently. You know something? This is no ordinary painting! It is said that there are about 300 expressions (idioms, proverbs, phrases, etc.) hidden in it. I spotted a good few of them in less than a minute, as a matter of fact! Believe it or not, I was very much intrigued by the challenge so I started to make a list of the expressions that flashed on me. Guess what! I have 86 expressions on my list at this moment in time and it will grow, I think!
Now, I would like you to join in the fun! How about that? It’s going to be one hell of an amusement, I can assure you! Well! This is exactly what I want you to do:
1. Scrutinize the various images on the painting for expressions that you could think out of them.
2. List all your expressions either on a piece of paper or a Word document.
3. Pick ONLY ONE expression from your list and type it in the comment box.
Important: You MUST GIVE…
a) …the meaning of your expression.
b) …a sentence with the expression used in it.
4. Wait for someone else to post the next expression here.
5. Now you can type your second expression along with the meaning and a sentence.
Note: Any contribution with MORE THAN ONE expression at a time will be DELETED!
