Horse Poo...



Since reading all of your great comments about my last post, Art Gone Mad, which highlighted an exhibition of 'empty frames' in London... Instead of answering you all individually like I usually do, I am instead going to share with you a conversation based on one that took place yesterday between my Dad and my Uncle Danny (who is a brilliant Artist). 

They were discussing their own thoughts on my post and I am sure you will all agree with me that this is one perfect all round answer!


(Danny) "Well Ted, What do you make of it?"

(Dad)   "If I'm being really honest, it's a load of horse poo"

(Danny) "Funny you should say that, you must be seeing the same subliminal image as me."

(Dad)  "Are you serious? That's a bit deep! It's only a blank box. Even though she's my   daughter I  can see  no artistic or intellectual merit in it whatsoever."

(Danny) "But surely you can see the horse?"

(Dad)    "What horse?

(Danny) "The one eating all the grass!"

(Dad) "Are you on a wind up, or am I so artistically bankrupt that I'm blind to a potential masterpiece? So I can't see a horse and now I can't see any grass!"

(Danny) "Well you won't see any grass now will you."

(Dad) "Why not?"

(Danny) "Because the horse has eaten it all."

(Dad) "Okay, so the horse ate the grass. But that still leaves the fact that I can't see a bloody horse!"

(Danny) "Well now it's eaten all the grass it's gone."

(Dad) "Aha, I was right!"

(Danny) "What do you mean?"

(Dad) "Well, if the grass is gone and the horse has gone, that can only leave a load of horse s**t, which is what I said it was in the first place!"


That says it all perfectly, don't you think? Lol!


Anyway, this time I thought I ought to post something other than a blank canvas! I was going to sketch a pile of horse poo, but I'm sure you'd prefer a bear or two :0)


 






















Have a great week!

  5. I can just imagine them saying all this too each other. How funny. Even funnier is that William was trying so hard to find something good to say about your blank piece of crap because YOU did it and he was saying that he can choose what he wants to look et etc etc. I then told him you think it is rubbish and then he said, ok it is actually rubbish!!

    1. He is a cutie isn't he? Not vintage enough for one of my oil paintings, but definitely worth a sketch! Thank you Nora :0)

    1. Thank you Jane! If I was invisible for one day, I would go in to the exhibition just to see what the viewers were really saying about it! I wonder how many of them will have the same view - but then surely they wouldn't pay to go in! I can't believe people allow themselves to be tricked like that! Or, do they all really try to imagine something on the canvas? The mind boggles! :0)
