Boudreaux, a good old boy from South East Louisiana,while not a brilliant
scholar, was a gifted portrait artist. His fame grew......and soon people from
all over the country were coming to South Louisiana to have portraits done.
Dah boy could Paint!"...and it looked good too!
One day, a stretch limo pulled up to his house. Inside the car was a beautiful
woman, and she asked Boudreaux if he would paint her in the nude. This was the
first time anyone had made this request of Boudreaux. The woman said money was
no object; she was willing to pay $50,000.
Not wanting to get into trouble with his wife, Boudreaux asked the woman to wait
while he went in the house and conferred with Clotille, his missus. In a few
minutes, he returned.... and said to the lady, "I can do dat, ain't no big
thang. I'll paint ya in da nude, but I gotta leave my socks on.......... so
I'll have a place to wipe my brushes."
