Painting: Thrift Store Paintings – People

I’ve always found it a bit sad coming across these paintings in thrift stores and charity shops – like finding a family album of snapshots of birthdays and holidays. Who would give them away? Who could give them away? The answer is obvious; the lousy kids, cleaning out their dead parents and grandparents homes and dumping everything at the local Goodwill. Some are better then others, some have talent, most are beyond amateur. Some of these are genuinely frightening, some hilarious and some just sad. The one thing they all share in common though is that no one knew how to paint hands.
