More Laughs, but This Time on Canvas

Oh, what would we do without the internet to make us laugh?  Read books?  I don’t usually LOL with books.  Sometimes, web sites are so wonderful, they become books.  See Cake Wrecks, for example. Still my #1 LOL site.

Here’s a web site that has become not one, but TWO coffee table books.  Museum of Bad Art (or MOBA) made me gasp with the first portrait of hideousness.  Apparently, Lucy in the Field with Flowers is “The Mona Lisa of MOBA.”  This portrait was found in the trash in Boston.  And, we are even treated to a behind-the-portrait narrative worthy of a PBS special. 

I knew I had to share this site when I saw the second portrait, Sunday on the Pot with George.  Yep, it is exactly what you think it is.  Good golly. 

I’ll admit that I don’t always know bad art from good art.  I just know what I like.  And, I like this site.  (BTW, you can purchase a print of some of the “finest” in the museum shop.  See?  Your Christmas shopping could be completed already!)
