Dumb old woman ruins 100-year old painting

From left to right: original, before restoration attempt, after


I can paint that! Wait, no I can't!


Would you think to match your home-grown painting skills against a classical artist? Probably not, but that's just what a well-intentioned woman in her 80s did recently in Spain.


The BBC Europe correspondent described the painting's current state as resembling "a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic."
Some dumb old woman was tired of looking at an old, faded painting of Jesus on a church wall and thought she could fix it. She didn't.

Even more hilarious, the original artist's granddaughter had JUST recently made a donation to get that painting professionally restored.

The painting isn't really that much other than she is.

Penz could have fixed that in MS Paint for $3.50.
