While viewing this unfinished portrait--watercolor on Tyvek (a semi-glossy film)--my internal fiction writer glossed over thematic material that might inspire a related short story: 1) Each were aware they may have the same lover, and seized on the modeling session to gain intuition over what to do next; or 2) The daughter had been given up for adoption as an infant and believed she had traced her mother--or had she? or 3) The girl had learned her mother was thinking of leaving her husband, the girl's father, and their mood is communicated by body and words.
The art seemed to lend itself as a springboard into some intriguing fiction themes. To be revisited.
