Monsieur Trudeau, Part 2

Back home, we paid a visit on Monsieur Trudeau. Has he come up yet? Monsieur Trudeau’s our art guy. Bernie likes him. He’s got this poodle named Fifi. I like Fifi. Monsieur Trudeau did time up at Northern State for painting these really cool pictures of horses and signing them with someone else’s name, Remington, maybe. Why is that a crime? Now he paints houses. 

Monsieur Trudeau lives in a garden apartment. The garden’s in the back. Fifi and I went out there. She was especially friendly today. On account of that I pretty much missed whatever Bernie and Monsieur Trudeau were talking about. 

Back in the car, Bernie gave me a long gaze. “Looking pretty pleased with yourself, big guy.” I yawned, a nice wide-open kind of yawn. “A genuine Martin Ramirez,” Bernie said. “Might be worth a hundred grand. The question is – who owns it?”

Why couldn’t it be ours?

Back home now and guess what. We found the Ramirez painting. This guy Martin Ramirez spent most of his life locked up, Bernie says, but he wasn’t a perp. I don’t get it. The painting shows a big guy in a kind of cowboy hat riding a little mule. It’s scares me a bit, can’t say why. 

Then comes a surprise. We took the painting to Monsieur Trudeau. Have I mentioned him? Monsieur Trudeau’s our art guy. Bernie likes him. He did time up at Northern State for painting these really cool pictures of horses and signing them with someone else’s name, Remington, maybe. Why is that a crime? Now he paints houses. He looked at the Ramirez painting for hardly any time at all and said, “It’s a fake, my friends.” 

So now what?
