Still Life Paintings is a collection of three short stories, thematically linked by painting. This collection is 10,000 words in length and contains bonus material in the form of an an essay excerpt from the book Reflections on Motherhood as well.

In the first story, Abstract Remembrances, a young mother has a mental breakdown after a tragic event. She paints the same image day after day only she can't actually "see" the image she repeatedly paints. Will art therapy be her salvation, or her final undoing?

In the second story, Different Strokes, a harried mother tries to teach her children a lesson in individuality and tolerance by introducing them to Art History Masters and the different methods of painter each used. In the end, she teaches her self an important lesson as well.

In the third story, Still Life Paintings, a woman is forced to attend a gallery premiere spotlighting her ex-boyfriend. The painful business event takes an abrupt turn, as she sees that each canvas holds a message just for her. In the end, she must read the paintings as a whole and decide what the message means for her future.
