Sometimes, we find art in the strangest of places, like in an overturned driveway marker. Other times, we find art right where we are looking for it, like at an art exhibition. In either case, it’s in those quiet, fleeting, open-minded moments that we see the depth of beauty in the world around us.
This month, we invite our readers to take a moment to acknowledge the art in their lives – whether it’s on a walk through the neighborhood or on a trip to the museum. For a little inspiration, we offer you our November Submissions.
This month, we’ve got submissions from a new acquaintance, an old friend and an FC regular.
First up, we have Erica Nazzaro’s hauntingly evocative mixed media art. She paints scenes that bring abstraction and reality together to create a dreamlike version of nature. We’re so excited to welcome her to the Fictional Café!
Next, we have James Best returning to give us another taste of one of his novels. This time, we’ve got his audio book chapters from Murder at Thumb Butte. We will be adding them to our Podcasts section.
Fittingly last up, we have the final chapter in Ward Parmentieri’s “Brady” serial. Will Brady solve the mysterious disappearance of Canadian rock star Rolland Toullouse? What new twists and turns will we find? If you aren’t caught up on the story, you can start here.
