Thrift Store Art – Without Monsters
It seems that you can’t find a good thrift store painting that someone hasn’t altered in someway. Wayne White has been doing it for years and has made a nice career out of it – and is truly great, but the current desire to put Star Trek characters or weird monsters in every cheap landscape has become a bit tedious (though some are pretty cool). For me the best of these kind of paintings is the naive stab at family portraits or pets – it seems the 60’s was the age of the home DYI artist. So, here are some truly disturbing, unaltered, paintings created by your mom, your aunt Loretta and your grandma’s crazy friend Pearl.
