After writing about the Edward Hopper retrospective yesterday, I went back and looked at all of his paintings, especially one of favorites: New York Movie. I've always wondered what that woman was thinking, what was on her mind that was so troubling that she could not watch the film just off to the side of the painting's left border. So, I decided to make up the story myself and wrote a flash fiction piece for Bryon Quertermous's new flash site, Flash Pan Alley.
The title of the story, like the painting that inspired it, is New York Movie. If you read it, let me know what you think.
