Lisette vs The Skunk. Oil on canvas, 12″x16″. For sale on etsy.
I’m pretty certain that Finnegan is being stalked by a skunk. It could be a Pepe Le Peu situation or perhaps it’s just enjoying tormenting him every night at 3am by spraying up a storm in our backyard. Finnegan is technically a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that we are fairly certain was a stuffed toy that came to life one day (possibly a child wished it so). He has little to no natural hunting instincts (the other day a cricket chirping in our neighbour’s garden terrified him) and what he has learned about hunting he has learned from our ancient housecat who most days can’t be bothered moving. But this skunk has tapped into the 1% of Finnegan’s inner hunter and Finnegan wants to destroy him. I want to destroy him too thanks to Finnegan’s 3am race around the house and howling fits. So I sympathize with Lisette here and commend her for her creative use of expensive French perfume.
