Dan, this time I believe a commenter captured my feelings about that painting best.

You know, if we opened up drilling in protected oil paintings, we could fulfill our oil paint needs for the next century.

And now another handy hint for budding artists: Leave the ugly fucking powerlines out of your painting, you total shit-for-brains.
This hint brought to you by new Crayola Oil Painting Set for Morons.

The power lines were the only thing I liked.

Those aren't power lines. You are looking at a topical painting. In the early twentieth century the residents of Provincetown would erect a giant asparagus in the mayor's backyard. It would stay up for a fortnight and then the three strongest men would team up to pull it over using old whaling ropes. The ceremony was covered in the ill-fated Oscar and Hammerstein musical Allegro as a background to the song Come Home, where tragically, three members of the ensemble were crushed on opening night, at least according to Stephen Sondheim.
