    When I did arts and craft shows I would add things to god awful motel art. I tried to keep it fairly small and quiet. Sea monsters sneaking up on fishermen, bear traps near the pastoral cows, dragons about to napalm peasant hovels. Most were hard to spot. I wonder if anyone ever saw the works, but if they did I think they would have gotten a kick out of them.

    abby ur so stupid. bruh he wasn’t complimenting her, he was being sarcastic🤦🏻‍♀️

    You don’t paint over other people’s art. No matter how bad it is. Especially nowadays when you could have just as easily done this on a computer with the same results. All this does is inspire other douches to start painting on other people art. Sooner or later some retard will be paining over a Salvador Dali painting thinking it’s funny.

    ….he bought them. He paid for them. He owns them. He can put them u p, paint over them, urinate on them, or burn them. It doesn’t matter, they’re his.
