Time to get back to serious subjects after last week’s comedy interlude.
I found this painting, another one by Iliya Repin while I was looking for something else and found it captivating. We can’t see the woman’s face but she appears deep in thought, facing the river but possibly not seeing it. Her dog is watching something, someone arriving the dog doesn’t particularly like? The sparkle of the moonlight on the water, the muted night time colours, the dog lying at the woman’s feet create a beautiful peaceful image, but there’s something waiting just out of sight that is slightly disturbing.
What do you think? Put the answer in a short story and post the link in the comments box before next Thursday. Have fun 🙂

I am not a fiction writer, but would love to try my hand at it. https://reinventionsreena.wordpress.com/2016/11/27/on-the-backside-of-time/
I think you just proved that you are a fiction writer 🙂
Something different. 🙂
I definitely missed these.
Life, as they say, is far too demanding. Nice to have you back this week at least 🙂
