I Did NOT Buy This Fantastically Awful Painting I Found Last Weekend at the Alemany Flea Market

… But I admit, I was very, very tempted.

  1. not only that, think about how they kept having to get out of the street every time a car went by.

    What is it artist find so tedious about the landscape surrounding the California cable car line? There’s a famous old TWA travel poster that also takes certain liberties as to what blocks should appear in the background there, but this here is an exceptional rearranging of downtown.

    Aside from the geographical accuracy, this isn’t nearly as bad as some of the flea market painting finds! (http://stupidexcited.tumblr.com/post/25298217477/a-gem-from-the-flea-market-this-morning)

    This is a priceless work by the unknown 1970′s master painter known as the Heironymus Bosch of San Francisco. That passenger appears to be Anita Bryant. The driver appears to be an owl. The stuff of nightmares.

    Are you nuts?!?!
    clearly a one of a kind San Franciscana piece that will be brought to Antiques Roadshow in fifty years!

      You are so right about it showing up on Antiques Roadshow. I am always amazed at what people cart in to be told it’s worth $10 Billion. I will never have anything valuable because I, like the writer, don’t buy it, or if I have something like this, I throw it away. I would’t have bought this painting, but I kinda like it. It’s really kitschy.
