A Brush With Life is a novella that explores the creative process with a twist of magic-realism. The story concerns a reclusive representational artist named Gordian Fray, who discovers that whatever he paints soon fades from his canvas only to reappear as a solid and three-dimensional object. When he realizes these images are indestructible, he paints a self-portrait that will never grow old or die. He allows his doppelgänger to take over his life, while he lives vicariously through it and quickly becomes subservient to it. Enter Gordian's former love interest Anna Trang and a bizarre triangle soon develops that ultimately pits creator and creation against each other. Gordian draws the line (so to speak) at granting his doppelgänger, now known as Gord Fry, his one wish: to paint a portrait of Anna to be his life partner who will also stay eternally young. Gordian is horrified at what he has already created, while also being fascinated by it. While the life-like portrait rises in the world, the artist’s actual life goes to ruin, and yet the two are totally dependent on each other.
