Jenny Kanzler, picnic, 2007, oil on canvas, 40 x 26 inches

This would be a great battle of shame. Put these two paintings in a room and let childhood and adulthood duke it out. Jenny Kanzler's picnic is like the beginning of awareness, while René Smith's Good Luck is practically a later version after years of lessons. Come to think of it, it wouldn't be a duel at all. Just a progression. These need to be on a wall together somewhere.

I love the "picnic" painting. Not only does it remind me of picnics as a child but it has an eerie quality about it that I love, being a big horror buff (ie movies, special effects, collect art cards with a creepy theme). Thanks for sharing.
