A novella-length fable about young Brian confined to a bare white room with a mysterious illness. Mervyn, a mere house painter, is hired as the only non-abstract artist to paint Brian’s room with the realistic scenes now missing from his life in the fantastic, modern yet magical village of Sandstone-by-the-Sea where Witches and Wizards attend the local Chamber of Commerce. Mervyn stuns all with artwork so real he creates a new, and better
world. Complications of a satiric, comedic and fantastic nature soon follow as all the tourists only want to have Mervyn do something like that for them, or to visit Brian’s room for a fee charged by his father. As these complications climax Mervyn is chased by a mob but paints a figurative and actual storm in which he escapes in a tidy ending that restores order and leaves Brian with an extra sense of wonder….
