The One-upper Goes Down

(105 words)

She couldn’t get the clouds quite right.  The proper hue eluded her.  She went back to the hills, mixing in some black to match her unfortunate mood.  Jenna had produced a stellar nude just days ago.  Typically, Jenna hadn’t even been interested in painting until Ellie announced she was going to take a course and fulfill a life-long dream.  Jenna waited until her own first masterpiece “The Haughty Cat” was complete before even disclosing to Ellie that she too had taken up the “hobby.”  With a gob of white, Ellie dabbed away the small, rapidly descending plane she had quite unconsciously painted onto the canvas.

  1. I agree with Rochelle. This is one of my favorites, too. I like the title, the concept and that “accidental” plane going down. Ellie sees this as something she was meant to do while Jenna has her “hobby.” That is going to continue to be a source of friction, especially if Jenna’s better.


  2. Nice work, Den Mother. It was fun to read.
    I love the name of your blog, by the way. Awesome!
    See ya next time…

  3. Sisters with issues, Friends with issues…haven’t we gals been through all that…what a trip indeed? Yup, plane going down for sure…may day, may day………..CRASH! LOL
    I am in love with your F.F! I was thinking, do you accept pics from other people too? 😉

    • Hi Shirley,
      As far as pictures go, I’m not in charge of FF at all, I just contribute. You’d have to link to the hostess and I provide that link before each of the photos on my blog.
      Thanks for your comment as well!

  4. Ah, that one upping is a tough road to go down. And “The Haughty Cat” sounds like a painting that you might as well give up than try to top it. Great title!

Hit it....
