No, I am not trying to parody Happy Catholic's "Fine Art Friday" - which I apprecaite rgeatly - but during this past week while my dear old friend from Brooklyn has been out, we've ventured down to the OC's Village of the Damned (Artists), Laguna Beach.
While there, we went into the Wyland Gallery, less to look at the "art" and more to take advantage of their patio in the back, overlooking the beach. After looking around the gallery, I am unable to decide - is Wyland (who has a first name but chooses to use just his surname as his moniker, the pretentious git) the Thomas Kincaid of the ocean and its endless dolphins and whales, or is Thomas Kincaid, Painter of Light(tm) the Wyland of fey English cottages and bad Italiante scenery?
I might be offending some people, but I have to say, I have never seen works that I dislike more and am absolutely amazed that people not only buy this stuff, they finance it.
Anyway, I stumbled across this website - The Museum of Bad Art. Scary, but I actually like some of their stuff. See for yourself. Most of the artwork has either been acquired through thrift stores or found in dumpsters. That's what I like - affordable art.
