It looks like a therapy session with complementary foot washing.

I <3 the super nice frame, and brass plaque on the bottom. You know this was hung somewhere that also had some sweet pleather chairs and couches.

I wonder if the plaque reads:

"My yoke is light, but my pedi's... they are to die and rise again for!"

Oh my. I want to laugh so badly at the above comment, but I'm afraid the roof will fall in on me.

I don't I can afford this. How much gratuity do you give? Is there a waiting list?

Andrea said...

LOL Joe, that quote is hilarious!!

This "art" is so atrocious it hurts.

BP CEO after latest press conference?

This is just bad in every way. It's not just theologically inept, though God love them for trying, but artistically - oh, boy.

The juxtaposition of styles, with the attempted photo-realism versus the solarisation effects, and the layout, and just... words fail me.

Where do you get these? Is there some repository of really bad devotional art? Why do people do this?

Crap-tastic!

My wife and I talked about the bad Christian art ("and then I let the Bear eat you...") over the week end.

I am absolutely convinced that the contemporary artists are trying their best. They just are not very good. How many El Greco's does the God provide for us thru His grace?

Hilary Jane Margaret White said...

The trouble is that now, the talentless are told every day of their lives from kindergarten up that there is really no such thing as bad art, that everything they attempt is worthy of praise. Every kid gets a prize. Every team wins a trophy. So now everyone is El Greco, and no one gets to say at any stage along the way, "Maybe you'd be happier taking metalshop."

What frightens me even more than in a couple of centuries these will be hailed as "masterpieces" -- Lord Jesus, Come Quick!"
(I'm sure I'm not the first person to say this, but just in case, there it is!)

Pretty fancy for a minister's study. Must be one of those televangelists or megachurches. :)
