    Chuck Jones - Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner Watercolor Painting (Warner Brothers, 1999). "Close But No Cigar." That line basically sums up Wile E. Coyote's countless attempts to capture the Roadrunner. In Chuck Jones' book, Chuck Amuck: The Life and Times of an Animated Cartoonist, he writes about certain rules for making a Road Runner and Coyote cartoon. One is "Whenever possible, make gravity the coyote's greatest enemy" and here is that rule acted out in living color. This is a highly desirable, one-of-a kind Chuck Jones (1912 - 2002) watercolor painting of the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote in a classic chase scene. The 15" x 11" painting is graphite and watercolor on acid-free Somerset Rag with a deckled edge and is signed by the artist in the bottom right corner. It's framed free-floating with a mat opening of 12" x 15.25", in a 22" x 26" frame. These characters are two of Jones' personal creations and this is a true work of art that comes complete with a Linda Jones Certificate of Authenticity. Condition is Fine.
