Fun Monday Challenge #46 - "Listen" and solve the unsolvable!

"Listen" collage by Lani textures by FlyPaper.
Lizzie Bellotto posted the above quote on her Facebook feed.  Well, it got my inner artist all excited, what would such a voice sound like?  Or what if there was a picture with no distinct image, what would a person see?
Try giving your conscious mind a little puzzle to work with while you create your art piece.  See what your unconscious mind does while your conscious mind tries to solve the unsolvable.
Want more inspiration?  The Rebelle Society has an interesting post here about the White Canvas and what a person might paint.  Alternatively you could wander through a few Zen Koans here.
Have fun, solve the unsolvable, and as always, feel free to share your work or play on Instagram by adding #14SecretsChallenge to your description, or by adding your photo to our Flickr pool

A voice with no words is the truest voice one can ever hope to hear! I think too often we get the wrong meaning behind somebody else's words, or we struggle to convey just the meaning we intend, because our words don't express it accurately. I don't think it's ever possible to translate a pure thought into the right words that every other person would understand what we were thinking. So many thoughts and ideas and feelings go way beyond words. Good thing we have art!
