Smoking Caterpillar

smokin caterpillar 0524″ x 36″, Acrylic on canvas, 2005


This painting was inspired by Alice in Wonderland and one of my pot smoking friends. She even posed for me to make this painting. In this picture she is a pot “smoking caterpillar”. I tried smoking mariguana a few times in my teens, but didn`t like it. It made me super paranoid. It was a very unpleasant experience, so I stayed away from it ever since. – Riel Benn (click on image to view larger version)
