"Eggs Benedict"

eggs benedict by Emily Uchytil

Take a look at this painting. 

It took me a few seconds to even notice that Jesus is holding a small frying pan with an egg in it.

The name of the piece? "Eggs Benedict." Hee hee.

"Eggs Benedict" was done by a Baltimore-based artist named Emily Uchytil (dig her site).

I first saw Emily's work hanging in the Idle Hour (201 E. Fort Ave.) a couple months ago. I sent her an e-mail asking her more about her work, but never heard back.

Either way, I really like this piece.

Great stuff, Emily.

If the faithful don't have a great sense of humour, it may be received with some of the outrage of the following Surrealist painting.
(Max) Ernst drew a great deal of controversy with his 1926 painting "The Virgin Chastises the infant Jesus before Three Witnesses: André Breton, Paul Éluard, and the Painter"

Has the website changed again?

First of all...sleeeeek new look!!!
second of all... it's a spatula
third of all Emily totally rocks. or does whatever the equivalent of rocking is for a painter

This one is a humorous painting, I like it too! I hope Jesus is the one who will cook for us for a sure it is delicious.

Shill Alert!!! Cheap Soma = Shill!!

GA, yes, the blogs page has changed, at least. Shankman -- good call. Since it's so dark, it was hard for me to tell.

I'd call it kitch...
