One Liner Wednesday- It’s a Mystery

For Linda G Hill’s  One Liner Wednesday


I chose this quote to remind myself why I love to write, I chose these two portraits to go with it because all of the figures are faceless and a bit odd.

I had an idea why August Macke chose to paint these portraits the way he did and I did guess right. Whatever his intentions, I still find them macabre and beautiful and they fit the quote I’ve chosen beautifully.

“The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.”

The Neat Freak

I love to write stories with twists and turns. I love to write stories about monsters and devils . But in order to do that convincingly  I have to be absolutley sure that the world is full of good things too.

So I have chosen this quote about writing by Gustave Flaubert and these photographs to illustrate the point.
