Ron from California

Ron from California, water color on paper, 18x24 inch

Straight out of a California community property divorce, Ron has come to Bangkok to forget, the girl he loved and married, the home he had to sell, the future pension lost.  His kids have been turned into magnets for monthly payments until they’re eighteen, the income from his business split in half.  He feels like he’s been put into a harness and told to trudge forward for fifteen years, up to his knees in mud.  No wonder he’s come to Bangkok.
