'the painting'

She could stare at that painting forever like it is talking to her every stroke so recognizable the artist must have been stalking her all her life every line so intimately done even her thoughts seem to be moving in sync guess someone eventually got pass the little obstacles maybe they cared enough to look a little deeper gosh, the girl in the painting looks amazingly just like her just a little happier

    Heck, you could probably categorize this one as an ekphrasis, Wilma!..Great analysis of the art work you described...It seems surreal in a way...Congrats on this win in Brian's contest..He DOES love the art related entries...Love, GWendolen
