I have a new idea that could make me and Bill as rich as Simon Cowell. “American Painter Idol”. We are going to discover the next rising star in the painting world. We could start auditioning painters by asking them to demonstrate their best painting styles. I’m sure Fox will pick it up, and we could ask the viewers to vote. Each week we could have a different theme/genre as we narrow the contestants down. One week they could come out on stage and paint their best rendition of classical art. Another week it could be their best pop art, and another it could be their best rendition of Thomas Kinkade art complete with their choice of bible verse. Everyone should put their own spin on the themes.
Bill and I vow to be good and acerbic when it comes to the critiques of the performances. If Bill wears his three piece suit, he could sound really convincing delivering lines like “That was perfectly horrid without one redeeming stroke in the whole bloody mess”. I could wear my baseball cap and say things like “Dawg you rock man”. Of course we’ll need an MC. How about it Grfxho? Kev? Carol King? Gypsy-heart? 100swallows? We’ll cut you in. Think about it, but do NOT steal this idea. I have it patented already. Or is it copyrighted? As for all you potential contestants, start your brushes!!!
