"Surf, Sun and Shrimp Coladas" SOLD

“Surf, Sun and Shrimp Coladas”
8 x 8in oil on museum quality panel

Ed likes to make the point that there are always two sides to every story.  His and everyone else’s.

Apparently Eddie did what he always does at the beach.
Played his rappin’ cat tunes loudly, mocked everyone who passed by about their “muffin tops” and told anyone within earshot that  they had hair growing in all the wrong places (like he’s got room to talk).
I think the final blow came  though  when he insisted he didn’t need to go to the port-a-potty because the entire place was one giant litter box.
Security was called and one attitudinal Eddie and one sunburned Phyllis were dropped  unceremoniously in my driveway.  Suffice it so say everyone’s holiday was cut short.

Now I have to listen to all of his philosophzing about the great mysteries of life since he has been to the beach, like…”would the ocean be deeper if it didn’t have sponges in it?”

Thank goodness I have a workshop to teach this week.  Three whole “Ed free” days!
