Travis Louie, Miss Audrey and Her Gnarled Locks, acrylic on board, 19 1/2 x 15 1/4" Sold
Miss Audrey suffered from "Bad Hair" after being bitten by an angry Emily Smithson.
She spent the next few years biting and infecting others while holding her bad hair in place with a powerful pomade that attracted buzzers and gentlemen callers. There were always men following her around because of her job singing and dancing at a the local saloon. On her days off, she would meet up with other ladies that acquired the same hair malady and they would gather without their pomade and bindings. They would let their hair take over and wager on whose hair was the most "gnarled".
