Yes, A Sunset Pic

















Bad, bad artist Kloe. I never let my students use a sunset, it’s just so cliché.

Wow, that's such a beautiful picture! Where exactly is this?

Sunsets a cliché?! What's next, Kloe -- dissing my man Bob Ross?

While we're on the subject of clichés, though, do you happen to know if any painter (other than maybe Bob Ross) has ever intentionally tried to put as many clichés as possible into a single painting, just to see how many would fit? Or if there's a painting equivalent to the Faux Faulkner contest?

Tim, how is it not a cliché? Sunsets have lost their originality.

Btw, Kloe rules, Bob Ross sucks.

Thanks you guys, for making me laugh, after a long day of sunning and swimming and chasing sea gulls...
Bob Ross is big on Turkish t.v. My friend who works at TRT is trying to produce a documentary equivalent of B.R. with Turkish painters. But what is really surprising is that the guy is also popular in Germany (his brushes are prominent in art stores) when some of the hottest contemporary painters are German.
Let's see, Tim, painters who use cliche: John Currin is good, Komar and Melamid polled the public to see what it wanted in a painting (a lake and mountains, if I remember correctly)... but no cliche contest. We painters shun contests...
