The Old Masters – re-interpreted 130

Is the old morale fluttering at half mast? Is your chin in the ‘up’ position only to keep you from bursting into tears? Do you wish you could raise your spirits enough to just feel down in the dumps? Are you perhaps feeling “Art Broken?

Don’t reach for the Xanax, Valium or the Prozac. Reach for the Natural Alternative! Reach for an Old Master and pummel the stuffing out of his paltry painting effort. You’ll feel so glad you did. Packed with vitamins L, M, A and O and our specially designed ‘slow-release’ version for older readers not so quick on the uptake, Old Masters are the viagra for the upper lip. With only happy side-effects, the Old Masters should be in every doctor’s tool kit. Speak to your pusher now – or simply pop in here for a fix – every Wednesday.

Oh yes – Today’s painter is Jacques-Louis David, again.

Dash it all Ariadne! !  I don’t mind you cutting costs on fly spray, but I do object to you killing the things on me with a bunch of Nettles and Roses.

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.
