Flash Fiction and Paint and Color and Ink and Paper – 2/27/19

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 “Ab Ovo”, by Iris N. Schwartz. Check out the illustration, then go to Fictive Dream and read the story.

Here is the image, with the banner:

and on its own.

      I liked making these eggs. I like oval and circular shapes as you know, and I was happy to have such a clear image to pull this story’s illustration together.

    I saw those eggs before reading the story and now, of course, I also see the freckles. The story is a charming one that I think is about something probably universal, the little moments of family life that become motifs and even traditions, and become the things that are most significant to us as time passes. I, therefore, really like your choice of palette for this piece. It seems warm and nurturing.

      Thank you, I really liked this story for just the reasons you mentioned – the affection. And I do like circles and ovals, too, so the eggs were perfect for me!
