Caught in the act -The crime: Starting a painting without thought and with malice toward a canvas.
On the morning of May 20 an artist walked into the studio and began to attack a young canvas. It was primed and waiting patiently for the next stage of its development. Without reason or forethought, and with no explanation, the artist picked up an unclean brush and began using it on the victim. Luckily the artist was caught in the act before he could inflict some real damage.
Warning: the following photo is graphic and disturbing.
When asked, "What were you thinking?" The artist broke down and ran from the studio. He was last seen in the kitchen ... near the refrigerator... Sad very sad.
It could have been worse. The assailant was caught in time and the little painting is now recovering from the attack with no damage to her image. It is hoped it will develop into a fine painting.
Let this be a lesson to all who paint...
Remember ... It's a crime to start painting with a dirty palette or brush.
