Despite his powerful heritage that linked him to the Aztecs of Central Mexico, even the Anasazi of ancient New Mexico, Arturo was a desperate man. He hadn’t had paying work in months. The artist Erik rewarded him with food and drink in exchange for helping with a little art project that involved a gallon of red paint and a shotgun.
Despite his powerful heritage that linked him to the Aztecs of Central Mexico, even the Anasazi of ancient New Mexico, Arturo was a desperate man. He hadn’t had paying work in months.
When Erik approached him, Arturo saw the warning signs. An aura of violent colors around the man burned like the fires of Hell.
But his want for food, drink, and warmth made him blind to the risk.
Erik rewarded him well, filling Arturo’s stomach in the warmth of his studio. Then he asked for Arturo to pose so that he could capture the essence of Arturo on canvas.
The results were far better than what Erik had hoped for. When he revealed his masterpiece to the world, he would become as famous as Arturo’s Brains.
Includes excerpts from "Less Than Nothing: a novel of Anasazi strife," and "Baxter's Gold and the Anasazi Marker: a novel."
