"...see how things work out."

Two Coats of Paint is rewarding as always, a favorite daily read. Sharon Butler got permission to reprint the first two chapters of A Painter's Life by K.B. Dixon. Here's my favorite excerpt from her excerpt:

Coffee with Lewis Moore. Haven?t known him all that long. A still life painter, he got tired of the hard time he was having in New York so he moved out here, found a small place in the Pearl, and started letting himself go. Says he has put on fourteen pounds and developed a television habit?that he lives on Perry Mason reruns and pizza. He still hears from his old friends?one in particular named Zachary is trying to talk him into moving back. He says it would be better for Lewis as an artist and a person to live in New York, but Lewis isn?t interested. He says he likes living here. Says the Mayor was just arrested for drunk driving?or should have been. The fact that he wasn?t has gotten a lot of people upset. He wants to stay around to see how things work out.

I just bought it.
