Meanwhile, a few thrift shop masterpieces found while out and about in the Kootenays...

#1 - Just Why?

You know, it's not the execution (they tried real hard), it's just the "why" of it all. Is it someone they knew? A Travelling Monk?

The paint-by-numbers Yellowstone with a few bears thrown in to make it the artist's "own". 

A seriously retarded looking Princess Diana ...

And, finally, this masterpiece from the Nelson Share Store which recalls to me Stormy's talk of "Adams Apple Land"...

Maybe an all male Burlesque troupe that wanted to immortalize their act? I don't know. But again - it does beg the question "Why?". And how could anyone ever be so heartless as to give it up?

 

Spotted this at Frog Peak Café, an art installation that works like a geocache - take a treasure, leave a treasure...

Hmmm. Another potential repository for Stormy Texas's abundant gifts...

 

And, while thrifting I come across these gems:

Hmmm. I'm hoping he wasn't an art teacher...

And this:

Which, just look at it...the woman's expression, her elbows, the arms, I should really have bought it...

Stuck on a couch watching Netflix hasn't been good for my media diet. A lot of rubbish.

That said, enjoying watching "Alone" - season 7. Tagline: "100 Days in the Arctic for 1,000,000 Dollars". This season they've upped the ante - the war is with yourself, it always was, only now there is no invisible other to compete against, only the clock.

And, as always, the caution against bragging, predicting, let your character reveal itself through it's actions, not idle boasts for no sooner will you utter one than you'll be out of the game ...

Right now, too early to call, and not sure if I like any of the contestants. We'll see. I do like the struggle.
