Boudreaux, a good old boy from South 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 have a place to wipe my brushes."
