Move over, Art Snow--F. Dressen's in town!

Another Thrift Store (or "Antique Mall" for you fancy-pants types out there) painting for your amusement and edification, this one painted by one F. Dressen.



I didn't buy it--$95 seemed a bit steep--but I'm starting to regret it. It's at that perfect juncture between competent (Mr. or Ms. Dressen clearly possessed some technical skills) and crazy, and the sad clown's face is rendered well enough that it feels like an actual portrait of some morose Pierrot.

  1. I think the Homocide squad should get over to the Dressen place and hit the backyard with their methane detectors. I bet there are more than begonias buried back there.

  2. I never heard of a methane detector before, but now that I have, I really want one.

  3. WOW! You shoulda bought it. It's way better than this one in Hillsdale even with the dog wearing a bowler hat. http://kansascity.craigslist.org/art/1877626577.html

  4. Scott, if you're going to get a Methane Detector make sure you turn it off when it's in the house or it might go off in the middle of the night and wake you.
