Battle-Scarred Expat

Battle-scarred Expat, water color on paper, 5x7 inch

In Asia for thirty years, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Singapore, Shanghai, Saigon and Bangkok. The grown-up children from his first marriage back in Sydney, his first wife, their mother, a distant memory.  No matter how much beer or how bald, he’s still a player and will be until the day he dies.  Worldly and cosmopolitan, he has already led so many lives, he’s lost count.
