Portrait of a failure

It's enough to turn you to drink! …

    Hey, guess what:I am peeed off with Opera about that but quite happy about not having that crap on my blog.

  2. This stuff reminds me of home.Not that everything in Wales is sugar frosted but there are places like these paintings. I mean what is not to like?https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Thomas+Kinkade&hl=en&client=opera&hs=WN9&rls=en-GB&channel=suggest&prmd=imvnsuo&source=lnms&tbm=isch&ei=DYSqT8awJoGQ0AXmtISOBA&sa=X&oi=mode_link&ct=mode&cd=2&ved=0CDgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1247&bih=864Not that the scenery in Wales is sugar frosted. On the contrary it is rainsoaked and only occasionally sunny if there is a 40 day drought on.Apparently Kinkaid was depressed by his culture's view of his work. Splendour is unfashionable unless you are a parblind French impressionist.I suppose Van Gough had it worse. But then they should have had stereo-optics of his stuff back-lit. He was a painter of light too only you had to set it up with hi-tech before you could see it.Ah well, at least the Saachi collection got torched. So some critics have good taste.
