Second Try With My Glasses...Mag 129

Tess Kincaid challenges us each week to reach deep within ourselves and create.  I, sadly, did not have my glasses on the first time I looked at this picture.  From some deep well I pulled a story about a drummer.  My apologies.  I now know the correct name for the artist and the art.  No wonder I had so much trouble!
A Dinner Table at Night, 1884, John Singer Sargent

DEADLY DINNER
"The dinner was delicious, my dear." 

"Thank you," she softly replied. 

Unable to watch, she wondered how long it would take for the cyanide to work on him.

There is so much sparkle from the silver and crystal on the table, it was easy to miss that subtle glint in her eye. Glad you noticed what was REALLY going on, Gail! Clever work, thank you for this twist of fate. =D
