Today's #flashfiction The Indecisive Painter

 “Don't be a big mouth.”
Pac-Man #quote

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are great together, they are great partners. You also jam radars. Since peanut butter is such a partner of jam, does than mean that it can also stop radar. Can you peanut butter radar? I oughta try it out sometime.

The Indecisive Painter

         Clyde needed to make a decision. Red or blue. What stroke of color should he use to start his painting. From there the color would give him inspiration for a subject matter by being the baseline of how he creates the work. After all the first stroke creates the baseline for shading and how other colors are built on top of it. He'd been at it for over an hour. He occasionally scratched his beard, as if some sort of color besides gray would come out of it. Red or blue. Red or blue. Red or blue.
          “Oh for the love of God. Again?” His wife said while she walked into the room and saw the blank canvas. She then grabbed one of the spare brushes in the studio and dabbed it in purple and stroked it on the canvas.

            Clyde smiled. Purple was the perfect color to start. Not red or blue. His wife didn't know how to paint. But she certainly knew how to inspire him.
