It's actually been quite some time since I've read a Stephen King novel. Strange, I know. But recently I picked up Duma Key.
After a construction accident in which he loses his right arm and his divorce, Edgar Freemantle moves from Minnesota to Florida to begin what his psychiatrist described as a "geographic cure." He rediscovers his love of painting and finds that he is good at it but his paintings seem to have something "more" to them.
