Año de publicación: 2004
Condición del libro: Brand New
The short story has become very popular in recent times as people are living in a world of speed, hastiness and fast moving objects. Along with this craving for quick results comes a lessening of the feeling for culture, for morality and for traditional values. My attempts at writing are prompted by the desire to hold up these values and to make reading more of a family inclusion. This is my aspiration and my intention. This little book is dedicated to my wife, LaVerne, who has been my inspiration to exercise my meager talents into composing in the short story form. It is my hope you enjoy reading this collection as much as I have in writing it.About the Author:
Portrait Of A Beautiful Woman Verne Morse Slamming his brush down on the palette splattering paint all over his work, Amiel Pardo was so disgusted with the model he bellowed, "Will you get dressed and get the hell out of here!" He stomped out of the studio and went down into his study screaming, "This is so frustrating it is making me sick. There is never a model that doesn't have something wrong with her. Oh, God, what I'd give for just one flawless creature and by all that is holy, I swear, I could create a masterpiece." With this angry outcry he dropped down on the couch, took a slug from a bottle of whiskey, and buried his head in the pillow. The model, frightened and upset ran from the studio to escape from his temperamental tantrum. She was crying and slammed the door behind her. Amiel, normally a quiet man was apparently feeling the anxiety of just turning forty. This might be the reason for this unusual outburst, and not being able to master his craft before, as he put it, "Hitting the mid-life crises." Completely frustrated he closed his eyes and fell asleep. His career as an artist had come to a sudden standstill and this last eruption was the straw that could break his will to continue. He slept half the night, awakened suddenly, half dazed, sat up on the couch and blurted out, "Why not conceive my own damn creature? I'll show them I've still got what it takes. Yes, of course, I'll create the perfect specimen. By God, I will do it. I'll make it life size, and call it, - Portrait Of A Beautiful Woman." He quickly cleaned off the easel, hung a new canvas and began to sketch. Enthusiasm ignited his spirit as he toiled with this new exciting idea. He worked endlessly night and day forsaking everything, including food and sleep. He shut himself off from the outside world and this burning passion kept him alive as he labored for weeks on his new endeavor. At last it was finished. He was overwhelmed by the beauty he had mastered and knew that his objective had been accomplished. He had created the most beautiful creature in all imagination and was proud for it was truly - a masterpiece! After hanging his new portrait up over the fireplace mantle he spent most of his waking hours in admiration of the breathtaking beauty of his creation. This heavenly creature just seemed to become alive before his very eyes and it was so captivating, he was cast under its enthralling spell. He became obsessed with her fascinating presence.
