Blog number 15 - art critisism for beginers . . .

Last night I saw a picture pinned up near someone's desk. 

It was a marvel.  A4. There was a great spray of oil gushing up over a desert landscape.  An ecological comment?  Energy. The violence of a new discovery perhaps and also the excitement.  How had the effect been achieved?  Black ink sprayed over a semi abstract landscape?  Perfect composition.  The hand of an undiscovered master?  I went closer - took a better look . . .

A rather poor colour photocopy of a photograph - a close up shot of someone's hairy pooch eating an ice cream!

I took my glasses off but the desert wouldn't come back to me.  Vision gone.  Nothing but a rather reproachful eye in a mess of hair . . .

There should be a moral to this - I'm sure there is one - but da**ed if I can find it.

Woof! . . .
