Pinkle, a three year old brown Havana, specializes in extended murals.
Her early works, such as "Dog Meat" 1992, (painted down both sides of
a Mazda Vanette), and "Rodin's Rollicking Rodents" 1993, (along the
back wall of the Rodin Garden at Stanford University), lacked any clear
vision and tended to rely solely on their adventurous nature for effect.
However, following a six month caesura in 1994, she returned to her
murals with an energy and fastidiousness which, by defying its own controlled
formalism, allowed her to convey the poignancy inherent in her subtle
messages of rodent rapture and canine incompetence.
"...the flamboyance and bold physicality of gesture which tended to
dominate (and limit) Pinkle's earlier works, have been replaced by more
delicate and precisely controlled marks which help to add meaning and
convey a deeper concern." Constance Merrihew, exhibition catalog, 1994.

Provided the portion of the fence with the work on it can be successfully
removed, this mural would be worth in excess of $20,000. (MONPA).
