Flash Fiction and Paint and Color and Ink and Paper – 2/25/19

Flash Fiction February 2019 – twenty-eight days of short short stories, an event taking place at Fictive Dream, an online fiction magazine featuring short stories. My part in the event? I did a small abstract painting as the illustration for each story. I’ll be showing one of them to you each day in February to accompany the story on Fictive Dream.

Today’s story is “No Remorse”, by CG Thompson. Check out the illustration, then go to Fictive Dream and read the story.

Here is the image, with the banner:

      Thank you. This story was clear in my mind, visually, and little details made a difference in how I approached the illustration, hoping to give that feeling of being in a car at night…

      Thank you, I tend to want one feeling in an image and this one went against it – I did wonder if it was an effective picture or not because of that, but decided not to second-guess it and let it be what it seemed to want to be!

    The emphasis on the headlights shining forcefully on the mugger brings the image to life. Also, I feel the details on the left with the turquoise reflect the inner chaos of the young woman. I think this mage is very effective.
