Down dooby doo down down


Cultural Melancholy, the subject of the rumoured reason for the broken throne and dissolution of Court Painter as one of the most successful artistic enterprises of its kind, is either in disposition or in habit. In disposition, is that transitory Melancholy which  came big time upon the Court Painter art studio with carbon taxes,sorrow, need, carbon taxes,sickness, trouble, fear, carbon taxes, grief, passion, or perturbation of the business mind, any manner of care, discontent, or thought, which causes anguish, dulness, heaviness and vexation of spirit, any ways opposite to pleasure, mirth, joy, delight, causing forwardness or a dislike. In which equivocal and improper sense, Business Magazine call it cultural melancholy, that is failure to move the product,dull, sad, sour, lumpish, ill-disposed, solitary, any way moved, or displeased. And from these melancholy dispositions no Court Painter enterprise is free, no Stoic studio, none so wise, none so happy, none so patient, so generous, so godly, so divine, that can vindicate itself; so well-composed, but more or less, some time or other, it feels the smart of it. Cultural Melancholy in this sense is the character of Mortality… This Melancholy of which we are to treat, is a habit, a serious ailment, a settled humour, as Aurelianus and others call it, not errant, but fixed: and as it was long increasing with poor sales so, now being (pleasant or painful) grown to a habit, it will hardly be removed.

Also it is rumoured a woman was involved!

They say that breaking up is hard to do
Now I know
I know that it’s true
Don’t say that this is the end
Instead of breaking up I wish that we were making commissions again
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down


The Court Painter is going silent for a while. It’s just not funny trying to paint fun anymore….a few words circa 1802 from William Wordsworth as the curtain falls….

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;—
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.

Deep frickin’ Fakes

Deepfakes of Court Painter  politicians & celebrities emerge in auction houses

Though clearly meant to be honorific, Court Painter Deepfakes demonstrate how a proliferation of Court Painter copies can devalue his reputation and market value

Deepfakes —  use artificial intelligence to manipulate original Court Painter paintings into spittin’ image copies and pass them off  as the well-known commissions that Court Painter is…well…well know!(for)

The auction crowds were huge everywhere

Particular examples were clearly meant to be honorific rather than deceptive as Court Painter acknowledged in a prepared statement; read aloud in front of the underpaid  Tim Hortons staff in attendance.

“I understand fans wants to honour my best work but it’s killin’ my bottom line which at this point has no bottom but that’s another story. You can’t just have copies of my work appearing willy nilly on the high roller world art scene! The computer software to create these fakes is freely available online, which means that an increasing number of my fans have access to this technology. Many of these fans have access to social media and can distribute honorific yet fake content to dozens of auction and resale houses around the world or god forbid on Saachi’s web site. It is access to this sophisticated technology and the ability to distribute innumerable copies widely that is the threat to my upstart portrait commission business……..So frickin stop it!”

A Contorted Tale

Fever in the mornin’ Fever all through the night!

New study confirms what you already knew: Court Painter fever is taking over Canada

Angus Reid study shows that 40 per cent of Canadians are following Court Painter on their favourite device or purchased a portrait for home or place of business

A new study says almost half the country is watching with joy the meteor like rise of the Court Painter.

A study from the Angus Reid Institute published Thursday shows that a full 40 per cent of Canadians are paying attention to this artist.

That includes everyone from ambivalent Montrealers to Calgarians to even folks in the out ports of Nova Scotia and optimistic treasure seekers digging away on Oak Island.

Also on the up is Canadian confidence in the artist chances to be Canada’s rep at the next Venice Biennale

While Canadian interest in the Court Painter is undeniable, Canadians are split on the question of who is really the power behind his throne: Some say it may be his mysterious and reclusive manager and Press Attache A Hardon MacKay.

47 per cent of Canadians polled say that no, the Court Painter is the one, while 45 per cent say his odd but seemingly effective Press Attache pulls all the strings.

Angus Reed even asked about Drake, known for being the Court Painters biggest fan, what he thought. Drake would only reply “The Court Painter is my Man”

Drake’s reaction when hearing that he had won the Court Painter lottery and would get a free sitting with the Master

Only six per cent of respondents believe that the press Attache AHM brings bad luck (known as “the Scottish Plague”) compared to 26 per cent who say he actually brings good luck.(known as “the Scottish Plague Lite”)

43 per cent say that, despite back rubs from Missy Mayhem, his main squeeze, the Press Attache’s existence isn’t having an impact either way.

The Angus Reid study also found that even if the Court Painter is not selected to represent Canada at Venice most Canadians following the artist are already satisfied with his exemplary behaviour ,massive talent and celebrity looks. Three-quarters of respondents said that it’s enough for the Court Painter to be the ambassador that he is and that they would vote for him if he ran for Prime Minister.

When contacted, the Court Painter deferred all queries to his Press Attache A Hardon MacKay. In a subsequent phone conversation with AHM all he would say is “We have a product… a very good product” and then slammed the receiver down muttering something about “…getting down to Bearly’s House Of Blues & Ribs on Barrington”.
