Doug: So I hear you found a painting?

Sarah: I DID. I was perusing my usual art critique blogs like important art critics like myself DO, and lucky for me, there was a hott new pic on “google image search: ‘oil painting’.”

Doug: WOAH. What does it look like?

01 sunflower

Doug: Is it a sunflower?

Sarah: IN THEORY it is a sunflower.

Doug: But I think it’s lacking in executional skill. I see ALL the brush strokes.

Sarah: But I think that might be part of its painterly charm.

Doug: More like painterly suckage!

Sarah: More like painterly finesse!

Doug: I’ll give you that.

Sarah: It adds to the potential of the sunflower being a metaphor for something brown/engulfed in flames.

Doug: Meaning flames have brush strokes?

Sarah: Amen to that, brother.

Hello!

We’re going to use this blog as a place to criticize contemporary (and not so contemporary) art. We’re going to be spending a lot of time at the MFA in Boston. We’re going to be harsh. We’re going to be funny. We’re going to be fantastic.

And you’re probably going to love it. Because we’re going to be lovable.

We’re probably going to start in September. We hope you can wait that long.
