F3, Week 20: Submitted for Your Approval


First, there was the Twilight Zone, and then came The Night Gallery. It is that gallery of the macabre that we will be visiting this week. To quote the talented developer and host of both of these fear fests:

‘Welcome to a private showing of three paintings. Each is a collector’s item in its own way — not because of any special artistic quality, but because each captures on a canvas and suspends in time, a frozen moment of a nightmare.’




This week, we are asking you to take us by the hand and pull us into that nightmare.

Prompt: Select one of the three paintings displayed here and base your story on the image

Genre: Supernatural horror

Word Count: 1,500 or less

Deadline: Thursday, January 14, 2016

Post your story on your blog or website and provide a link to it in the comment section of this prompt.
