Quandary Resolution 2836
parky, trompe-l'oeil, collaborate, plangent
My trompe-l'oiel started out as a collaboration with Picasso, but the Spaniard's absurdly disproportionate eyes and four-fingered "muppet" hands proved far too abstract for the realist style, so I gave the renowned artist a plangent drubbing and chased him out into the parky night, keeping hot on his heels for a good forty minutes or so, until at last he dove through a sewer grating and escaped me.
