The Winner's Toast

"And the winner is–" Zoom freezes on my laptop. But I don't care. From the gallery director's opening comments in her awards speech, praising this year's portraits, it's clear my landscape has not caught the judges' eyes. Again! However, I've learned to channel disappointment into creative energy.

The Winner's Toast is a short story from the Tall And True writers' website, written and narrated by Robert Fairhead.
