Day Two Hundred Thirty: "Llado" by Stephen Skipp


A man has a conversation and relationship with a painting. The man is clearly an artist, perhaps one who is going mad. This story was quite brilliant and at times, the reader forgets that this is not a story about two people.

The line "You’d be surprised just how comforting a frame can be, when a frame is what you need" is perfect and is a line that not only defines this piece but is a great BIG picture sort of statement about life. This was a well written and clever piece that I would recommend to curious readers.

A link to the story online can be found here:
