…is the name of today’s story at Fictive Dream.
Throughout the month of February 2022 I will be showing you illustrations I did for Flash Fiction February 2022 at Fictive Dream, an online magazine devoted to the short story.
Here’s the image editor Laura Black chose for this story, All the Love You Cannot See Told in Three Parts, by T. L. Sherwood.
And here is the artwork with the banner. Take a look at this image. And then…
Read the story at Fictive Dream.
I love the earthy feeling of your painting, reflecting the wood. (K)
Thank you. I felt a sense of the cycles and repetitions of life in this story so strongly because of the tree’s personification and therefore its. links with people.
Alas no time to read the story today so I cannot comment about the relationship between your artwork and the text but I will state that this is one of my favourite pieces from your series for this year’s short story project. I absolutely love the colours and the visual textures.
Thank you. I think the color scheme really appeals to me, it’s not one I typically have used and I am wondering why not. It goes to show how this event really improves my painting skills, regardless of all the other benefits.
Claudia, thank you! I saw the artwork and was wowed by how perfect it went with my story. ❤
Thank you! I am so happy you feel it complements and supports the story, that is what I hope for in making these artworks. Thank you.
The illustration for All the Love You Cannot See Told in Three Parts by T.L. Sherwood is among my favourites as it is for Laura (PA Pict). It’s harmonious and somehow soothing to the senses. I see hints of a box and the stories and secrets associated with it; the colours complement each other beautifully, as do the respective tones of illustration and story. Just lovely, Claudia, thank you.
THank you. I like this color scheme very much – it is the colors of outdoors in winter to me, just as spring is about to come on. I also liked this story very much in the way it was told, leaving gaps to be filled and leaps to be made.
I am enjoying looking at this series of fictive dream images
Thank you. I am glad to hear it. I like seeing the group as a whole, when it is over, and even though all the stories and the art are of course different, there is a thread I can see in my work, which I like.
I wish you’d make these into a series of blank cards, I would totally buy them! I mean all of your illustrations for Fictive Dream!
Thank you. You know, I have literally hundresds of images from my Fictive Dream work, who knows, maybe some day???
