Thrift Store Find

Awful painting

So I was out thrifting with the girlfriend today and I saw this monstrosity hanging on the wall at the local Salvation Army. Beautiful and somewhat grotesque at the same time. I had to have it. The girlfriend doesn’t care for it that much, but I could look at it for hours. Freaking hours. Sometimes bad art is loads better that actual art. Where do I even begin with this one. Dang. The complete disregard for actual anatomy? The Windows? That guy hiding to the woman’s left with the jar on his head? This shit is fantastic. I have this hanging right above the computer I’m typing this up on. Anytime I want I can look right and see this bastard up on the wall and know I got something special.

  1. Yeah. It’s almost like people don’t get rid of good art for some reason. This kind of stuff’s more interesting to me anyways.

  2. Just noticed this post was from 2005. I thought it was more recent. I see now I hit the “last” button instead of the next page. Oh well, an oldie but a goody.
