The Old Masters – re-interpreted 76

You know those websites that are packed with useful information, educational treasures and gems of wisdom? Well this isn’t one of them. You might see a well known painting by a famous Old Master – but you can bet your boots there won’t be any scholarly rhetoric on lighting, technique, harmony in tones (is that a valid phrase?) and all that. What you will find, is a concerted effort to look deep into the image – mainly to come up with an unsuitable interpretation of caption.

if the artist happens to be unknown, so much the better, because his descendants won’t come after us wielding big sticks with nails in the ends.

"You might as well stay behind the curtains Claudius, we're having Boccoli and spinach casserole for supper - again."

“You might as well stay behind the curtains Claudius, we’re having Boccoli and spinach casserole for supper – again.”

About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
