POTD: Picture in Picture

G11_3734Picture in Picture Szentendre, Hungary 2011

This artist who sits in Szentendre day after day selling paintings to tourists apparently has a lot of slow days so one day painted the painting you see in the propped on the wall middle of the photo. It’s a little hard to see but it’s a painting of his spot on the street, complete with the painting of his spot on the street propped on the wall, which of course contains yet another painting of his spot on the street propped on the wall, etc. etc. etc. As an artist who often sits at art shows with a lot of downtime between customers, I can appreciate what he’s done to alleviate the boredom. There’s a photo of him trying to stay occupied in another way in my Lives Real and Imagined gallery here. (See Lives Real and Imagined #9)]]>
