8x8" oil on canvas, SOLD
Sometimes it’s nearly impossible to fully explain where the inspiration comes from. I mean…I can explain it but I don’t think you’ll believe it. (However, those of you that are long-time readers of this blog may have no problem believing me.) While sitting at ArtWalk in the blistering heat watching the waves of people roll by, we noticed this guy walking three terribly hot, identical white Chihuahuas. They were all hooked together and when one went left—they all went left. No choice. It seemed really funny at the time (or maybe it was the heat getting to me). But as the man got a bit closer and turned to look at one of my paintings we noticed that he had a fourth Chihuahua riding high on his shoulders. Like the precious little prince. He looked a pretty nervous. But my guess is that it wasn’t the height that had him worried but the thought of the ass-whoopin’ he had coming from the other three hooked together, over-heated, pissed-off Chihuahuas.
