FINE ART (WITH REDONE & EVEN FINER TITLES)




I wrote a post about this site, http://thatispriceless.blogspot.com, a couple of years ago (click here) & I've decided it's time to revisit it.  Steve Melcher takes old masterpieces & updates their titles.  The majority of them are on religious themes because that was what many, if not, most, of what was painted in those times & has survived to the present day.  I think some of these border on brilliance!!  These pictures are all new.  I'm keeping my comments short but I find it extremely difficult to limit the number of his pictures I want to post.  Relax, scroll & enjoy!!




















A man comes to a woman’s house a little early to pick her up for their blind date.  She lets him in & asks him to wait in the living room while she finishes getting ready.  He notices several paintings (by an obviously untalented artist) & is intently studying them when she walks in.  She sees him looking at the “art” & says, “Do you like them?  I painted all of them myself.”  He blurts out, “Oh, thank heaven!  I was afraid you’d bought them!”  I have no idea how their date went.


If you haven't got the patience to create a masterpiece using oil paints,
I guess you could use this method:
