Challenge Ekphrasis

Post by c_nordlander » Sat Apr 30, 2005 11:40 am

OK, so I got an idea for a writing challenge. I was going to post this in Hellfish's thread below, but then I realised that his idea was for a fanfic challenge, whereas my one is more geared towards original fiction. (Not necessary, though. Hmm...)

The challenge: write a story (no size limits imposed) based on a painting. There has to be a definite link between the story and the work of art and what goes on on it.

Also, if the painting isn't particularly well known, it might be helpful to link to it in the post, or else describe it, just so the readers will have a clue.
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!
