At the flea market this week I saw this painting:

image


I'm glad I took a photo of it - because I can't stop thinking about it. It's so ridiculous. The wincing baby face. The chicken legs. The wings. It's so odd.

I didn't ask how much it was, but I can't stop thinking about it. At least I got a photo to share. It's so bizarre.

I just wanted to share. Someone actually took the "time" to paint this. It's fascinating.

Whoa I've seen that image before. It used to be on a clipart disc back in my Graphic Communications shop in high school. I used it as an "album cover" for a few tunes my pals and I threw together. That one was black and white though. How weird that somebody painted it.

Probably some sort of treasure map on the other side of the canvas. Ya shoulda snagged it.

I would have bought and hung it on the wall opposite my toilet. Currently there's a painting that says "do everything with love".

Definitely would have asked on the price. Now you'll be left wondering forever!

If anything I've got a new avatar for GTZ.

If it is there at the next flea I'll ask. It certainly isn't worth much. I wouldn't pay much for it. I posted about it on my Facebook wall and created a bidding war between a few individuals who tell me they are going to go find it next week and buy it before anyone else, so perhaps I should change careers and become an artist rep.

It's so fudging ugly. It's so fudging beautiful.

I feel like it's alive.
