acrylic on canvas, nailed to wood

Where do I begin? On 'stache alone, Burt Reynolds landslides his way into Tough as Nails history. There are no words that can even begin to describe his toughness. You could shoot him to outer space in a Pontiac, and he'd come back pissed off because there was nowhere to peel out. This doesn't even touch on his universal sex appeal. To make sure this piece was as life-like as possible, I splashed some of my fine Brut cologne into the acrylics. Since Brut is commonly referred to as the "Essence of Man", I have come to the conclusion that Burt, himself, must be the "Essence of Brut". Enough talk! Stop looking at paintings and go watch Smokey and the Bandit.
