Six Sentence Sunday 11-18-12

This Sunday's six are from a WIP I'm playing around with, tentatively titled FROST.  Hoping it'll turn into my third 1Night Stand story for Decadent Publishing, following LIGHTNING and THUNDER. Stay tuned.


A gust swirled the tails of Raines' paint-spattered linen shirt, the sleeves rolled up to reveal his biceps, as if it were the dog days of August, not the chill gloom of February.
“You must come in, sir--the wind’s kicking up and you haven’t eaten in two days.”
Raines tossed his brush, the bristles slathered with Mars Black, onto the palette in irritation with himself and his absent muse.
The unfinished landscape was all that stood between the ravening beast pacing with increasing agitation inside him and the rest of the world.  Hot with fever, his rising temperature bursting through the fuckin' stratosphere--and his muse had deserted him.
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille.
