About Barbie and Frankenstein and Giant Chickens

I'm sorry. I have not been keeping up with the blogging. Life has been getting in the way.

 I just listed a couple of paintings on eBay today. I had fun with the description of the Frankenstein paining,

"This is a reimagined thrift store painting. This was originally just a landscape painting, just a hill, which I purchased at a local thrift store. I added Frankenstein. I remember, when I read Frankenstein, how most of the book was really just Frank wandering the hills, feeling lonely. Poor guy.

"The picture with frame is 8.5" wide and 6.5" tall. Discounting the frame, the actual painting is 6.5" wide by 4.5" tall. It's a nice painting for a small space. An RV. A dorm room. A desk in a crowded office. A studio apartment. Or you could put it in the middle of a giant wall, just this one little painting, and thus accentuate his amazing loneliness. You could put it in a cage, to accentuate his tortured soul, trapped in this artificial body. You could put it in your Barbie Dream House, and show that Barbie really did have taste and depth; we just never knew before. You could mount it in your car, and have a nice conversation starter for you and the hitchhikers you pick up on your next road trip to Durango. The possibilities are there. They really are."

I wonder if it's a thing now to get really into your descriptions on eBay? Does anyone else have fun doing this? Is there a club somewhere? Or am I all alone, like usual?

The actual ebay listing is right here. I've also listed a giant chicken painting


  1. It costs $72.90 to ship a giant chicken picture to California?

  2. I just figured out that I can offer "economy shipping," so it should be cheaper, now!

  3. I really would have liked the chicken, but I am too low on wall space.
