A is for Alken

Aha! It's A Day for the April A to Z Challenge. It's also the first day of National Poetry Writing Month.

Does this 19th Century painting amaze or inspire you to write or react?

Duck-Baiting

  1. I can imagine it inspiring a piece in which a young, urban girl sees herself as the duck in this painting and draws parallels in her world to the dogs and hunters and even the dog trainer, all conspiring toward her downfall.

    (A bit hard to go cheery with this particular prompt!!)

    Nice to meet you through the A-Z!
