BOO! Eight - The Goldwater Cathouse

This rambling wreck of a painting needs to be simplified and tied together better, but it serves as an idea painting..its the uze, a full sheet of unadulterated hay-wirosity.

Bunch of low-lifes (mostly my friends), minor league scofflaws since the drug laws were relaxed, squatted in this shack and conducted their dubious biness deals. One of the girls loved cats and some clever chap figured he would advertise in the faint hope of an economic gain or at least getting a cathouse means whorehouse which I am sure most of you sophisticates know. The house, being old and reputedly the scene of a fatal stabbing, had slogans and warnings all over it. So "VOTE FOR GOLDWATER" and "THE CATHOUSE" becomes "The Goldwater Cathouse". I'm sure Barry would be impressed. (1964? Presidential candidate)

I think the terlit needs a proper burial...I was gonna put "We won't take any crap outa you" right next to it but too many letters. The pampas grass are in full bloomage in my front yard so I figured I put'em in...
