Because if you don’t laugh, you’ll scream.
That’s the very definition of symmetry.
I can relate to this.
My bags are lonely… as well as heartbroken.
I’m not a religious person, but first plague…. now insects.
It’s mildly convincing, but I’m still holding out for water into wine.
A protest I can get behind.
Well that’s depressing.
Because the answer to “what’s new?” has never been more boring.
Okay, I lied.
I’m no where near done with these yet.
Is it me or do those look like giant marshmallows ready for toasting?
While I know this is a shocking waste of a precious resource….
They still make me smile.
Mankind’s abundant harvest.
We’re not bored.
What makes you think that?
But really, how can you not love these art re-creations?
Look at that woman!
Having her husband’s head on a platter has simply made her day worth living.
The nose is a little less spectacular, but okay.
Im not sure which is more disturbing, the original or the remake.
Is it me…
Or does that guy look like George Harrison’s Indian guru from the 60’s?
Art imitating life, or life imitating art?
Either way…. that man is slaying it.
And now, the final picture.
Which couldn’t be any more relevant if it tried.
I can’t help myself, so bear with me.

That’s mildly disturbing.
This, even more so.
His master’s voice is definitely not as poignant in the 21rst Century.
The best use of grapes, ever.
And I simply have to.
Re-created art…. part whatever.
Do you have too much quarantine time on your hands?
Do you need to keep the kids entertained?
Maybe you just want to see your husband use the vacuum cleaner.
Whatever the reason…..
Re-create some art because I’m loving them!
I’m beginning to think Direct TV is screwing with me.
They know I’m stuck at home and subject to my husband’s absolute control over the remote during the quarantine.
The reason I know this?
All the quality programming they’re providing.
It was Robbie the Robot in Forbidden Planet.
A classic the husband just had to watch.
Have you hugged your robot today?
Here are the last 3 examples I’ll
gleefully share with childlike enthusiasm bore you with.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say this fellow might have enjoyed the exercise a little too much.
Proof positive modern life is lame.
And because this one literally made me snort, I saved it for last.
Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did.
Because we all need a little more laughter these days.
A few more clever examples.
American Gothic anyone…?
Madonna and Child.
Well, not quite.
And if modern art is your thing?
Best use of Kraft American cheese….. ever.
For the next few afternoons I’m going to be my usual helpful self and give you something to do while you’re quarantining yourself at home like a good viral citizen.
Lately the net has been filled with clever and creative ways to occupy your time…. but I’m going to share one from the Getty Museum that really made me smile.
Since visits to their museum have been cancelled for the near future, they challenged their members to re-create their favorite works of art.
Here are some of my favorites:
Kudos to this couple.
I don’t know what the hell he put on his head, but damn.
I’m not sure Dali would approve, but I’ll give them an A for effort.
And finally, here’s one that’s better seen by side.
Brilliant, I tell you!
