Excerpt from Painting Angela:

He stepped back to take in a larger painting he hadn't seen before. It was a landscape of desert and hills in the background. Lying on a reptilian branch that stretched from an ominous looking tree at the edge of a cliff, lay a naked woman; her leg in the foreground raised, her thin veil snagged on part of the branch that appeared to blow in the wind. To the right of the painting was the title: The Dilemma of False Impressions. A horizontal painting, three feet by four, done in earth tone colors except for the startling reds and blues, it made you want to reach out and take the woman off the branch.
