A very worried lady hesitatingly stepped into the parlor of a psychic.
She sat nervously in a high-backed client’s chair in a dark and cold room.
After the preliminaries, the session began with the mystic peering into her crystal ball.
A lot of details from the past were reeled off in a staccato pace that the lady was completely awe-struck.
Suddenly there was a pause and the psychic’s manner turned grim.
‘There’s no easy way to say this, my dear. So I’ll tell you what I see: your husband is a powerful man, but prepare yourself for this. You’re going to become a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death later this year.
Visibly shaken, the lady stared at the woman’s wrinkled wise-looking face, then at the flickering candle on the table, then down at her hands. She took a few deep breaths to compose herself:
‘You couldn’t be wrong?’
‘I’m afraid not, my dear. The vision I see is very clear.’
After a period of silence, ‘I simply have to know one thing,’ she finally says.
The fortune-teller met her gaze.
The lady steadied her voice and inquired: ‘Do they find it out all in the end?’

The image is of a painting ‘Tools Of The Trade’ by Shana Rowe. From her web site at shana-rowe.artistwebsites.com: ‘Born and raised in Maine, I am a self taught artist and have been doing art since I was a young child. I work mostly in acrylics, watercolors and oils, but do some pencil, colored pencil and pastel work too. I like to paint a little bit of everything and love to put a fun whimsical spin on things.’
Here are some more from the artist that I liked for the riot of colors:
