ArtWork By  Mark Betcher

Howdy! What you are looking at here is one example out of 23 Manic Mark Portraits done by Art Teacher Frank's Second Grade Class. Below is my favorite. Of course ALL of them are special. But this one has just the right feel for a child who is visualizing freely and having fun. The student also has great intuitive design skills.

I'd like to thank Frank for this amazing and wonderful surprise. It's a touching gesture.

Atom Bomb End Of The World Painting

Whoo Hoooo

Stick a label on me if you can
What the hell you thinking I’m an old man
I paint on ply wood with no real plans
I wear sun glasses and a framers tans

What day is it? What day is it?

Hawaiian shirt hung on my back
A shinning example of look at that
Hoover the Wonder Pug & One Eye The Cat
Another painting thrown on the stack, SMACK

What day is it? What day is it?

All my paintings live in dark and gloom
Prince of Pointlessness and The Duke of Doom
Dressed up in funny gold costumes
And I sweep out bunker with a yeller broom

What day is it? What day is it?

And don’t forget Earl EW or EWWWW
Nipple covered pasties in painters blue
Play the same three chords until I’m threw
Freestanding art is stuck together with screws

What day is it? What day is it?

Now I refuse to give up what I don’t know
For another does of depression misery and woe
You think this is fun? I don’t know
Did The Lord leave town a long time ago

What day is it? What day is it?

WTF and OMG
Add another rhinestone before I leave
I like oatmeal and glitter and have a college degree
Pause... A moment to reflect before I go CRAY ZEE

What Day is it? It’s Painting Day!

Howdy This is Manic Mark Your Real Fake Outsider Artist coming to you from the bunker system located underneath the art villa found somewhere in the jungles of the mid west

What Day is it? It’s Painting Day!
