Amen painting

Submitted by leebamarks March 30th, 2010

A man came to my door a few years ago selling paintings. I thought this was so tacky that I actually liked it. It reminded me of the velvet paintings my grandmother used to have. It was only $50.00 and I think he really needed the dough. It reads ” amen” in hebrew. He said he painted it himself, did he ? I do not know, but like I said I was happy to give him alittle gelt.

    This painting is good for the Passover spirit but for me it’s a tad too serious to be Kitsch. Although the giant Hebrew letters (which my parents would turn in their graves knowing I have no idea what they say (Shalom?)} – loom as large as God. Maybe if you glued pieces of broken matzo on the frame it would take on more aspects of Kitsch.

    It says AMEN in Hebrew! When I find some Kitsch that say’s Shalom in Hebrew, I will send it you so you can see the difference.!!
    Incidentiall, my daughter thought we should add shells to the frame to make it more interesting.
