“The Origin Of Ninjas”
Just before Christmas my daughter Laura accidentally locked herself out of her room. No indoor house keys were to be found. After exhausting the conventional methods of screwdriver, credit card, and bobby pin, she and her sister decided to “ninja kick” the door down, like in the movies. They donned “ninja” headgear and videotaped themselves in the endeavor. Not surprisingly, their efforts were successful, with no damage to themselves, or to the door. That video clip inspired this painting. To Laura, my Wannabe Ninja.
