Selkies, Not Selfies! 100-Worder #VSS

Arthur Rackham

Selkies, Not Selfies!

What a fool I was. Am.

I was idly painting on the shore one day, when this maiden appeared – as if out of nowhere.

I was surprised, and not a little honoured, when she asked if she could take a selfie with me.

Well, painting a selfie is no easy thing; but, I think I made a decent effort of it.

She laughed at my confusion when she asked if I was hoping to hang my selfie in the Tate.

I was never to paint a picture again.

We swam away and I ended my days submerged in my art.
