CRAIGSLIST ART ROUNDUP

It’s a Twilight painting… with wolves. I know nothing about the Twilight series, because if I wanted to read about the torture of loving abstinence, Abelard and Heloise had better excuses for never shutting up about it and probably wrote better, and if I wanted vampires I’d watch some True Blood, where (I hear) at least the writers let them get it on. But why are there wolves? Are there werewolves in Twilight? Please enlighten me in the comments.

The artist doesn’t seem to think it’s strange enough to mention, so what do I know:

I created this painting in response to the twilight movie series that is sweeping the nation. It is painted in watercolor paint. It is approximately 18inches by 24inches in size. It is not framed or matted. It is simply in poster form hence the low price of the artwork. If you are interested in buying this masterpiece please contact me by e-mail.

twilight movie painting, $75.

Side note: I quit smoking yesterday. If anyone has any info on where one might procure a fake cigarette, not one of those fancy electronic vaporizer ones, just a reasonable facsimile of a cigarette I can put in my mouth and pretend to smoke, for the love of god tell me where I can buy one. Any other smoking-quitting advice would also be appreciated.

I may also be posting more frequently about things that I hate, such as the term “man cave,” for the next few months. Bear with me!

This week in Craigslist art

I was talking with a friend at work last night about how she was selling an old pastoral-type oil painting on craigslist and had gotten a million responses from all over the place and was afraid it was a secret masterpiece or something (note: it’s already taken, some dude is actually driving down from Brooklyn).

But I wanted to see what this painting looked like, so I searched craigslist for ‘painting.’ The results were so weird that I then searched for ’sculpture’ and finally just ‘art.’

Let me tell you: if you’re ever bored with all your normal internet things to do, I highly recommend searching craigslist for ‘art.’ Also, ‘taxidermy.’

For example:

MUHAMMAD ALI (FULL SIZE STATUE) REAL LIFE SIZE – $7995 (AMBLER/FT.WASH.)

MUHAMMAD ALI WAS CAST BY ARTIST JACK DOWD. THIS PIECE IS CAST IN HYDROCAL, A GYPSUM CEMENT. IT IS HAND PAINTED USING ACRYLIC PAINTS. THIS POSE IS FROM THE SECOND LISTON FIGHT OF MAY 25TH 1965. THIS STATUE IS 70 IN. TALL IN THE BENT STANCE. MEASUREMENTS ARE VERY CLOSE TO ACTUAL……MUST BE PICKED UP. NO SHIPPING AVAILABLE…WEIGHT AROUND 175 LBS…. CASH ONLY……THANKS

Good lord! How do you feel about that, Jodie Foster?

BUST STATUE PROP, FROM STRAWBRIDGE & CLOTHIER 8TH & MARKET – $75 (HAVERTOWN)

Is it weird that I kind of want this?

UP FOR SALE FOR $75.00 OR BEST OFFER.

I WORKED FOR STRAWBRIDGE & CLOTHIER FOR 18 YEARS IN THE VISUAL MERCHANDISING DEPARTMENT. THIS ABSTRACT BUST WAS USED IN THE 8TH & MARKET STREET LOCATION IN THE WOMEN’S ACCESSORIES AND COSTUME JEWELRY DEPARTMENTS. I HAVE JUST A FEW ITEMS LEFT THAT I AM TRYING TO SELL.

WILL MEET LOCALLY, WITHIN REASON, TO EXCHANGE

FULL BODY MOUNT OF TURKEY TAXIDERMY – $65 (hellertown)

Is it weirder that I kind of want this?

Art Deco Majesty for SALE – $9999 (Wilmington, DE)

This kinetic sculpture is very pretty and very well-designed, no doubt! But I think that whole era of $10,000 doo-dads may have ended a while ago.

My kaleidoscope collection (SALE OR FOR TRADE) – $75 (NE)

They are roughly 40- 50 years old collected from all over, mostly art museum NY, all are in perfect condition…

Take all for 75. Im in the NE. Please leave a number if interested.

Most are cardboard/some wooden/board, few metallic…a good eclectic mix :)
Thanks and have a good one.

Something about that last post just depresses me immensely. I’m gonna go eat my feelings now. And by my feelings I mean more queso fresco/black bean burritos. Awwwwwwwww yeah.
