    I read the comments below and looked at Ruben's self-portrait on his Bio.... What came to mind was the title: "Casualty of Enlightenment".... Love, Suzette

    Great painting, Ruben! After being stuck in the house all day with my family riding the storm out, I kind of look like this least we didn't lose power. Can't wait to read Cyndi's story. I thought your name backwards would make an interesting name (One Bur) but it sounded better in my head then on paper. I love Teddy Sundown...

    I have looked at this awesome piece of art work.. A few times and think I have come up with a name..."A clowns misery" shows the sadness but leaves you guessing at whats wrong...Is he upset because someone is leaving... or because he has messed up.. You never know, which is why I love art work.. Great job!! have a wonderful day.. cory

    Okay, I wll write the first part of a SHORT STORY (with some poetic language) tomorrow, if the planets are in alignment and nothing funky happens. I don't have a title yet, I think its about 3,000 words long and if I was trying to sell this as a movie in 25 words or less it is, "Apolcolypse Now meets Driving Miss Daisy." Are you in the path of Isaac? Please, stay safe and sending safety prayers your way! Cyndi

    Oh, I'm-a lovin' it!!!!! You're on, Pizon! Oh, I love this challenge and the art is YELLING at me, seriously, I hear a story (writers, go figure) I will do this, but first.... you acutally painted this? How cool! Second, can I take this anywhere, anywhere I want? My imagination is twisted and I do not want to offend you. Three, the clown's name is not Isaac, in my imagination. He is Agent Orange and had three tours of duty in Vietnam. The homefront is a twisted mess... is this okay? I'm weird. Hugs from Cyndi If you prefer I can make this more about you. Fill in your dang BIO and the clown will tell me something else.

    love the pic, Ruben - reminds me of my manager (the expression, I mean, not the make up). Yes, Isaac the Clown?

    Just name the painting Issac, certainly looks like the storm is approaching him.

    I mean the sad eyes and frown, not the paiting itself.
