Continuity Error Filled Breen!

Painting is about 19.5″X16″, acrylic on oil or acrylic stretched canvas, painted over an existing painting. Text says, ‘This painting suffers from continuity errors! But the subject is uninterested.’

First thing I noticed about this lady, sitting and closeup, was how the painting was divided like scenes in a movie. Upon closer inspection, I also noticed that she was wearing a nice sweater on the left, but somehow had changed into a collared shirt with vest on the right! If this was done in an adjacent scene in the same timeline in a film, this would be called a ‘continuity error’. So focusing on that ridiculous idea, I plowed forward! She also looks completely uninterested in her surroundings so I thought I’d ratchet things up a bit to wake her up – but it didn’t seem to work! No matter what indignities I heaped upon her, she always seemed nonplussed! I painted the background on the left before I remembered to shoot the prebreen version below, so it is not really completely breenfree.


So – what are the continuity errors in this painting? Well, as mentioned before, the wardrobe differences start things off. The backgrounds of the two scenes are different colors, pink and green, on the left she has insect legs growing out of her back and a steel mask embedded on half her face, while on the right she has halibut nostrils and a deformed electric eel growing out of her shocking hairdo. On the left there is a deep-sea eyeball diver while on the right yingyang is a frogman. Highly organized insects on the left are bees, but on the right are ants. Also, the watch on the left has a closed eye while on the right it has migrated to her neck and is wide awake! What time does it say it is? Breen buying time! Starting at a penny! Begin your breen collection here! All proceeds go right in my pocket and will be squandered gleefully on crap! Go HERE to see if you can buy this for less than that Snuggie you got your wife as a joke present for Christmas!
