Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #52

It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts from one of my current reads with:
  • Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.  
  • The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
Today I'm featuring:
 The Painter  

BeginningBOOK ONE
40 x 50 INCHES
I never imagined I would shoot a man.  Or be a father.  Or live so far from the sea.
As a child, you imagine your life sometimes, how it will be.
I never thought I would be a painter.  That I might make a world and walk into it and forget myself.  That art would be something I would not have any way of not doing.
Page 56: A dollar fifty, Pop, if you keep swearing you'll go broke.

Which book are you reading now or about to start?
