"Catskill Sunset" - mixed media painting
"He watched the black 4x4 drive into the parking lot just as the sun was setting on the mountains. Obvious out-of-towners. He hated them, but liked their cash. One of the car doors opened and a blonde woman slid out. He spat out his cigarette and leaned over to the window, squinting his black eyes at the woman.
Emma stood standing squinting in the weak twilight, looking around. She brushed down her silk dress and sharply turned, picking up the man peering through the garage window. She smiled slowly. So he was still here then. She doubted he would recognize her now though".
