Thrift Store Landscape Paintings Improved by Monsters

Thrift Store Painting, perfected by Artist Thyrza Segal

 

Paintings at thrift stores get a bad rap, possibly because they're the kind of things people wanted rid of enough to donate. (Hey, the donors could have burned them or turned them in for use as in quality testing at the Sharpie factory, right?) Anyway, artists Chris McMahon and Thyrza Segal decided instead to perfect discarded landscape paintings by adding monsters, trying as well as they could to match the original paint and color scheme, so the addition would harmonize completely, like the buckaroo roping a who-knows-what above. There are more brilliant improvements to behold at Twisted Sifter (hat tips and thanks), and just remember, Winter Gift Season is Coming.

Fun! I'd like to see them do the same with motel room paintings.
