Painting Prompt

    This will be a game similar to Caption The Image. Here, the goal is to write a few lines or paragraph based on the painting from the last post. Stephen King did this with Hopper's "The Music Room" but his was a complete story. To avoid getting panned (because the rules of the board prohibit sharing fiction) try to not get carried away. You can be funny or serious. Please leave a new painting prompt for the next player and be sure the image is provocative/suggestive enough and not too pedestrian. Thank you.

    Example:

    Kristen never imagined that she'd finally see Italy on her thirtieth birthday, nor that it would be forever linked with an assassin who disposed of his victims with the same ease with which he played his cello. Her husband was no more; she imagined him begging for his life before the gun fired and he was tossed off the boat. The debt she owed, bundled blocks of American cash, seemed to call her name from the bag beside her but, she'd think later that night in her hotel bed and wrapped in the dark, it was a familiar voice, the voice of guilt.

    Tagging Marsha to check and make sure that this type of personal writing under games is allowed.

    Will let it go for now as long as there is a limit of 3 sentences but will keep a watch to make sure it doesn't stray too far into violating the no fiction by other writers.

    Doc, make sure I did this right so subsequent people will do the right thing too.

    Guests at Keith Richards' party were never sure why he was so adamant that his aquarium be cleaned "right now".

    Nancy stood and stared with disgust at Jebediah's face while he played, Give Me That Old Time Religion. He'd made it in the door 4 hours late and drunk. His buddies dropped him off, laughing like loons. He looked ridiculous without eyebrows.

    I changed his name. Jebediah was much better given the tune he chose to play.

    "When shall we three meet again? In thunder, lightning, or rain?" Henry recalled these words from his late wife's play and trembled at the stirring cold air. The earth was still fresh on her grave and the innane beeping of a truck backing up was one of the few night sounds. Like a Poe tale, or Macbeth, he pondered the idea of digging up her body and embracing her once more. Ashamed at heart, he bowed his head and simply said, "out, out brief candle!"

    Pardon the game interruption. :D I like both of these pictures. The first one made me think of Andy and the Calla, too! The second picture made me think of Boo'ya Moon.

    The file on my computer is basically a thumbnail. I had to squint. It looks like a man with short hair and a trench coat. Interesting.
