Leo likes to remember how it all went down. Diagnosed with cellulitis, he was prescribed steroids. Thinking it was his Muse’ sense of humor, Leo reveled in his manic creativity at the easel. He painted with colors, shapes, and ideas that would make Bosch blush and Gauguin giggle.
When Yasmin’s gallery asked him to put together an exhibit for March, he included, “Dog in Clouds at Circus” on a lark.
Patrons gathered, buzzed, and tweeted friends. The local news channel’s you-tube reached a MoMA acquisitions broker. Leo’s first sale bought him a year’s art supplies. He visits “Dog” and laughs.
