I don’t know that I’ve exclusively said it here, but I am a ‘dumpster diver’. I’ve never climbed into an real dumpster but I have pulled LOADS of things out of other people’s trash, cleaned them up, and brought them into my home. Today I’m going to tell you about one of those things.
This painting was lying on my neighbor’s front lawn with some other obvious ‘art rejects’. I grabbed it quickly on a whim, because I think canvas art is almost always cool. And I didn’t want my neighbors to notice me going through my neighbors trash, because apparently I live in constant fear of what casual acquaintances think, but will tell the entire internet about my ‘gross’ habits.
I know that it is a painting of someone else’s children but I think it’s pretty firmly in the class of ‘cool portrait art’, curly-haired-boy says that it is CREEPY.And now every time he passes by it he makes an over the top ‘surprised’ noise and yells about how weird they are.
So I threatened to paint over it so that only their eyes & smiles were left…
Or tell everyone that it was a portrait of us when we were kids. And when they asked why Kent is so much smaller than me I’ll say that I’m the blonde ones and he is the brunette.
So naturally to settle this argument I turned to the internet. Portrait of strangers’ children. Creepy? Awesome? Awesomely creepy? Creepily Awesome?
YOU TELL US!
