Oil Worker from Saudi

Oil Worker from Saudi, water color on paper, 18x24 inch

He’s a supervising engineer at one of the petroleum loading ports in Saudi Arabia, originally from Oklahoma, earning big tax free dollars under a very hot sun.  Every three months, he flies over to Bangkok for two weeks of beer, sex and rock and roll, booking into the Nana Hotel and chasing cute Isan bargirls 24/7.  They tell him he’s not just a Butterfly, he’s a Helicopter, flying between girls so fast.  For them, he’s the perfect guy, loaded down with cash and happy to spend it all, polite and kind to a fault.
