Funny or am I just warped?

I find this funny but it could be because my humour is warped. You decide.

For those who aren’t a Degas fan, a bit of background: Degas drew a lot of women bathing, getting in and out of the bath, drying their hair, drying their arms and you get the idea. I am not sure exactly how many drawings he did but there are books containing just his nudes.

Anyway, this pastel I copied from one of his many bathing pastel drawings except I obviously left out the nude bather, hence the title “She’s gone to lunch”. Please someone tell me that you also find that funny.

She’s gone to lunch

What about a series? “Still at tea” and “She got bored” and “She’s visiting mother”????

  1. omg, lmao!!! You could do an entire series juxtaposition Degas – with humorous titles – and make a mint 😉
    I would (crassly) call this one “That Time of the Month” 😉

    1. It’s funny you say that one because after I published this post I thought “she’s got PMS”. Wonder what percentage of the population know enough about Degas to get these?

      1. I can’t even begin to guess – I’m on the data/nerd end of the spectrum, however I have studied and appreciate the art.I can think of at least half a dozen “like-minded” who will LOVE what you have done and completely “get it!”

        Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Your work is incredible!

    1. You have outdone yourself Row, I didn’t think of that one and I just love the elegance in the way it is stated. My fav so so far.

    1. Thank you, you have a very good eye so it’s nice to hear this from you and yes I do like Bonnard, especially The Bowl of Milk
