Hello, everyone! Hoping you are all doing well, today, and that you are enduring the remainder of Winter. Spring is almost here; we’re almost there! Soon it will be warm, more flowers will be out, more birds will be flying about, more beach-time will be had and more badly dressed people will be showing too much skin at Walmart. Yay!
Today I have a post on a subject I have not done in a while. It shows a series of artworks and, with captions, I imagine what the subjects could be thinking or saying. It’s something I do just for fun! In the past, I’ve written two earlier posts with the same idea, but using different artworks.
I admire & respect all of these artists and their artworks, which are dynamic in their own unique ways, yet I like to be humorous about these works…and can do so without being offensive! I hope you enjoy this new post.
A Bar at the Folies-Bergère by Édouard Manet, 1882.
Bartender silently thinking to herself: “I’m really not in the mood to hear any drunk sob stories, today. I don’t want to hear about all the artists you’ve chilled out with. I don’t want to hear about the time your carriage wrecked. I don’t want to hear about that time you were so inebriated that you climbed up the Arc de Triomphe and you don’t know how the hell you even got up there. Just drink down your absinthe and refrain from talking!”
Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear by Vincent van Gogh, 1889.
Vincent thinking: “Yeah……I really hate that Paul Gaugin guy, but I probably should have paid better attention to my razor-wielding skills. Yup. Messed myself up this time. Good thing I don’t need my ear to paint…I’d be so screwed.”
(Van Gogh used a mirror in painting this, so it is his LEFT ear that’s bandaged, not the right. Read more details by clicking HERE.)
Flaming June by Frederic Leighton, 1895.
Most uncomfortable sleeping position in the history of people having sleeping positions.
The Kiss by Gustave Klimt, 1907-1908.
The most uncomfortable kissing position in the history of people kissing.
Campbell’s Soup Cans by Andy Warhol, 1962.
Campbell’s Soup Company says to itself: “Andy Warhol painted our products! We are the COOLEST freakin’ soup on the entire planet.”
