Colonel Mustard I Presume
Several weekends ago, I took a trip to the beach with family. Overall it wasn't bad, but I came back more tired than ever. While at the condo, we played a few rounds of the board game Clue. It was the first time my brothers had ever played it and they caught on rather quickly. Andrew however seemed to have the notorious problem of rolling ones and twos, making his trek across the board slow and arduous. Each time he played as Colonel Mustard, and I had the idea for this painting (still unfinished). He is known for giving people "that look." Below is an example of how game conversation would often go.
Colonel Mustard: I believe the crime was committed by Miss Scarlet with theeeeee.... Revolver!
Professor Plum: Where?
Colonel Mustard: In the leg.
Mr. Green: He means what room?!
Colonel Mustard: In the Conversationary.
Professor Plum: You mean the Conservatory?
As for the painting, there are about three layers on the face. Probably could use a few more but I've already spent more time on it than I thought I would.
