A Flower in the Heart of the Painting

“On his easel rested a painting of Kristen in a modest black dress. She sat primly in the exact center of a blue-gray couch, her hands folded in her lap, her bright face, erased of emotion but shining with freshness and youth, a flower in the heart of the painting.”

–from “A Portrait of Happiness and Love,” A Flower in the Heart of the Painting by Amy Krohn

My new collection of stories is coming out November 1st. You can pre-order it now at Wiseblood Books. For the next few weeks this blog will provide insights and quotes from the book that you won’t get anywhere else! I hope you enjoy it.

    1. Thanks Hannah! The painting on the cover is a watercolor by Carl Larsson, a late 19th century/early 20th century artist from Sweden. The painting is mentioned in one of my stories.

  1. Sounds really good! I’m going to ask for it for Christmas. Carl Larsson has some children’s books you can get through the library — they are really great. Check them out.
