Alright, alright, I admit it, I'm totally addicted to a reality show. Work Of Art - The Next Great Artist just started up again, and I'm so excited. Do any of you watch it? It's an art competition, and I think it's fascinating. It's this fun glimpse into other artists minds. I also really like the challenges that they put the artists through. I'd love to follow along and do the challenges myself (ahh, if there were only more hours in a day). This week the artists had to choose a from a variety of "bad" art pieces. They had a clown on velvet, dogs playing poker, etc. The artist's then had to create a "true" work of art using the bad art as inspiration, keeping at least some aspect of the original intact and recognizable. It was fascinating to see what they did. A few pieces seemed worse than when they started, but many of them were really creative and wonderful. They went in directions I never would have thought to go. It's really inspiring. Who knows, maybe I'll make a trip to the thrift shop. However, whether I paint along, or not, I will certainly be watching.
How about you, do you have any guilty pleasure that you're thankful to watch?
