Mid Week Tease

I'm so happy to join Mid Week Tease again. This time I'd like to share with you an excerpt from my short story that will be out on Smashwords on September 14, 2013. I hope you like it!


Time flew by as Damien indulged himself in his daydream. It gave him inspiration—that little bit of edge that made people gasp when they first saw his work. He was done now. The first painting of Julien was complete. The boy hung beautifully from the sky, like an angel with white clouds around him and crimson blood covering his body; a perfect angel, being punished by the invisible hands of the gods, about to receive their last, dispassionate verdict—with complete and exquisite submission.

Damien put down his brushes and stepped back, catching his breath as the full impact of the painting hit him.

It was his masterpiece.

“You should remember, son. There is nothing more important than a brilliant painting. They won’t look at you or your work twice if it’s less than dazzling. Do you understand?”

Damien only stared at his old man; his eyes widened, trembling, watery. He pressed an arm against his abdomen. It would bruise later, but he understood his papa had only done that for his own good, to make him a good painter. No, scratch that-the best artist. Better than his own father if that was possible.

He knew now he’d become one.
