Somehow this has lead me to the website for Boston's Museum of Bad Art. I can't even begin to do justice to what's there; let's just say that it's worth your time. Almost every single painting they have posted should be seen, but since I can only choose one, I've decided to go with...wait for it...."Sunday on the Pot With George." (I know. What a title!) Someone on the site describes the painting as "the single most memorable artistic experience in his life--a bit like his recent bout with shingles." Yes!
Ok, I'm sorry, but I have to show another one. This one was painted on lace--four layers of lace, to be exact.
The description is worth quoting in its entirety:
The texture of the lace lends a luster to the complexion. Careful placement of Christmas poinsettias adds an Easter Island element to this remarkable portrait of the sixteenth president's wife. A painting that could have changed the course of the Civil War.
