The "F" Rat

AS I have written previously, different emotions trigger my artistic spirit. Last week, I was "humored' by municipal planning (or lack of it).

Never get an artist mad. They may just get back at you through their artwork. (check out "Billie Jean" by Michal Jackson).

I used to be a freelance art teacher, which actually meant that I had quite a few bosses. The end of the school year was always critical, as every school that I taught in wanted an exhibition of the year. I was very happy to do so, as it was great positive exposure for the students as well as myself, marketing my ware for the next year to come. But, here is a big but, there are many schools, many students and all must be done within a short period of time with a very definite deadline. Usually, the headmasters were demanding and understanding at the same time.


There is always, every so often, that one individual that just doesn't get it. This work was done as expression to my frustrations. It came out funny, surrealistic and totally reframed the situation.
