In celebration of Earth Day this past April 22, I made this painting as a satiric look at animals retaliating against human encroachment.
"Burn down my home, 'an I'll burn down yours!"
And who's his accomplice?
Woodsy the owl! YES, the "Give a hoot, don't pollute" owl! And what's he doing?? LITTERING!
The level of disrespect for residential property in this painting is appalling. It's also jesting one of cinema's most painfully prolific cliches: tough guys walking away from explosions. (Yes, I know about the Lonely Island song on that topic, I've seen it - thank you.)
As harsh as their retaliation may be, a lesson needs to be learned here, folks. It's like that famous Ghandi quote: "A burned down home for a burned down home makes the whole world a giant f#€%!&@ pile of ash." I think he said that when he took the stage at Woodstock. (If I remember correctly... )
Anyway... buy this painting or I'll burn down your home.
