Shot  No longer cocked and ready, but fired, this subject was painted as found. Life does take the shine off of things but one can imagine the fun had in doing so.  Perhaps you remember the smoke, noise and a particular smell due to the small charge on the roll of paper uncoiling with each 'shot'. Now a toy of some controversy, this was a simple and common toy of the past.  Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. 18" x 36" (1.5" depth). Ready to hang. Indoor use only.  $1850.00
