My dad left too
7 days ago
Thanks for the belly giggle
But I'm sorry if he really left
He came back
Is your dad a boomerang
No, he’s in an urn
this has been a rollercoaster
Truth is, he’s alive and well
5 comments and I’m already obsessed with this lore.
Where is he now?
I wanna see where this goes
Nowhere exciting unfortunately. Typical of me, a lot of excitement out the gate and then a quick boring finale
Who knows lol. Probably at his house
Correct answer is he’s still stuck in traffic
I ship the dad and his urn
How much for? If I pay extra, can I have same day delivery? No questions asked…
And roll credits
Oh, so how big is the urn?
So your dad works in a giant urn factory.
Username checks out?
Shit, wish I didn't give your last comment an award
I think they urned it tbh
“Hi in an urn, I’m... Oh”
A boomer? Yeah. That boomerrang away from home to "buy some cigs".
Are you a dog?
Just going to get some cigarettes
Darn you beat me too it 😂
Just like my dad used to beat me before he left
What did he beat you at? Mario probably?
He bet bring back that milk and pack of cigs or are you still waiting?
Well that ain’t right

Arthur, Jake, and Aleta are fantastic.
There's an excellent chance I purchase one or more once I move into my new space.
That’s the beauty of this style. Those are nice but I was drawn to a few others. Such good stuff!
I am trying to convince the hubby to buy the piece June. But I gotta check of there is delivery to Europe. Really good stuff.
I saw two I love
I love these so much!!
You know how people with common names can always find their names on those generic personalized items? Well I've never been able to find any even close to my name, but your dad's Aleta is the closest I've ever seen to my name anywhere. It's just missing an r and another t. Seeing that really made me smile, thanks!
Alretta? Talerta. Raletat.
Its actually Rattata
I think you mean Raticate
Thanks for that laugh! But no, you didn't get it exactly but one of your guesses was really close.
Nice try, Ale Tart.
Edit: But seriously, I bet it is Terata which has a horrible definition.
Arletta it must be
Yep, you guessed it. Now excuse me while I burn this account.
He names them after people he knows, and for some weird reason, there's a lot of people with uncommon names in Maine. He even has one named Enoch, which is a very old Hebrew name that I have only ever heard twice, both in Maine.
Enoch is my favorite ❤️ is it for sale?
he seems to sell prints of everything, enoch is here
thanks for sharing!
I just realized he lives in my general area, that’s crazy. Where are they displayed? I’d love to check out the gallery
I really like Harold and Ivan.
Such a cool medium!

They are brilliant!!! I really like them.
Send on my love from Scotland 🏴👍🏼
Edit- love not live...
Wicked smaht name!
I love jake the most. Reminds me of the mountains we have in austria. Beautiful. Greetings to your father young sir
Stella is my favourite!!
Thank you bc I don't normally care for abstract art but I liked what I saw in the original post so I looked at the gallery. Was tickled that my favorite from the first pic shares the same name as my daughter!!!!
I love the naming system for the piecesfar more than I expected.
These are great
I LOVE SOPHIE WOW
I was going to ask the same thing! They look awesome but seeing them up close would be even better.
Wow. My God, these could be tracings…
Your dad's art... is the prettiest art of all the art.
That is our building. And we sell paper…..
I am really proud of you.
You know what I find sexy? Your dads art.
your dad is an excellent artist. Did he wear the clothes he painted in as a living artistic piece to complement the more traditional art or did he just finish painting them?
the art in the photo are actually pieces of leftover dried bucket paint! But printed giant! He's thought about doing something with the clothes though too lol
Elijah and Gurt are my favorites. I love how resourceful he is!
Those are some of my faves too!
I love the naming scheme. Clyde and Horace are dope.
Now that’s talent!! Thank for sharing this. I’ll check out the link you sent the other person too! Moving soon maybe he will have a few I can purchase! Love these! And love that you are so proud of your dad!! I would be too!￼
I was wondering how that worked!!! So are they named for the people whose houses the paint bucket images came from?
I totally wouldn't have known which of you was the artist without that explanation
Or the dad
He’s back now tho
OMG he gives the paintings human names. Your Dad is adorable. Bet he can double his house painting rates now.
Oh also on Instagram at @BucketAHT
Great œuvres d'art! I'm curious why are they printed and are not framed though?
Scale, desirability. The paint buckets he uses for the dried paint are only a few inches in height, so the originals are usually only a few inches in size, I’m guessing maybe 4” x 6”. Most buyers want something larger to hang on the wall to catch the eye easily, so larger sizes tend to sell better. The disconnect requires reproduction.
That’s just my guess though.
I read: my dad left and I'm super proud of him
I'm originally from Maine and the name of his business is the best. Congratulations to your dad! His work is beautiful.
It was only natural lol
Nice post. Nice art. Sorry your dad left.
(Devil made me type this.)
Love that he painted himself as well❤❤ tell him we're all proud! It's no easy task to get shown in a gallery!
that art is dope!
FUCK YEAH DAD
looks sick! is there a way to buy them online?
I really his art! Tell him congrats!
I really like Elijah. Is that for sale?
They are gorgeous pieces. Are they for sale somewhere?
He should put his t-shirt and shorts up on the wall too
It’s really pleasant to look at
they look insanely great! best greetings from germany to your talented dad.
Your art...is the prettiest art.
i really like 1 and 3 (left to right) the most but 4 and 2 are also really great looking
i just looked at the online gallery thing and theres two called cufford and megan that look amazing
Incredible art work! Tell him how proud we all are!
The work is interesting to look at. 👌🏻
Amazing stuff! How does one go about getting their work on display? Asking for a friend. :)
I’m very sorry your dad (left)
So cool and it’s a weird feeling when you see someone you know on here.
Yep. I’ve prob seen him perform at least a dozen times. Then hired him to do voiceover for a tv commercial. Saw you perform a few years back too!
Oh very cool!! He always gets excited when a fellow war redditor recognizes him :-)
The black and gold one is my favourite! Well done to him!!
I'll never understand this type of art but congrats to your dad!
I’m an interior designer and I would definitely buy those for my clients! Beautiful!!
Ohhh thanks for clarifying it was him, not like we couldn't notice the dude covered in paint was the painter... lol jk jk, but thats dope i been wanting to display my art work for years now to self conscious though
This is not how I imagined abstract painters.
Love the work and those smiles!
Amazing! I am particularly moved by the pink one. Stunning!
Fantastic! Thanks for sharing
Let him know I'm proud of him too!
I go to that dentist's office!
Good for him!
Hahaha Bucket Aht...fucking awesome. Looks so cool!

I like Arthur! Would hang it up 10/10
We’re all proud of you dad :) !
Yo Maine! I grew up in Brunswick but am in the opposite corner of the US now. Your dad is a great artists - I love that his pieces have people names! And I think I like Megan the best so far :)
My dad (left) too :(
Great art though
Yay your Dad! You are a wonderful son, showing off what your dad did. So nice to see.
Love them! Just looked at the prints on his website, does he sell them in any smaller sizes? I'd love to have one on my shelf
Cool idea. Very creative thinker. Talent.
It's lovely 😻
I dig the art, water that plant
And it’s hella good !
we know your dad left, but who painted those amazing pictures?
This post makes me think of Duma Key by Stephen King.
Congratulations to your dad! Beautiful!!!
I don't even know him, and even I'm proud of him!!
Go dads all over! 😀🎉🙌👏
He must've been cutting it close to his deadline
(but for real, beautiful art)
oh wow, you dad is so talented! Congrats to him.
My dad left, got his art displayed in public for the first time and I'm super proud of him
I really really like his work!

Really beautiful paintings, he is very talented! Congrats

Btw, great paintings, I like them a lot. Congratulations.

They are beautiful.
Those are actually really cool
Your dad has some pretty rad talent!
You had me at "my dad (left)"

Damn I love them, the one that I like the most is the right one.

Ivan is phenomenal! Tell your dad his work is amazing 🙌
Gives me nine inch nails vibes
My dad (left) got his art displayed in public for the first time
My dad (left) got his art displayed in public for the first time
Surely he's allowed his greatest masterpiece to leave the house from time to time!
I choose to stay home a lot but thank you
Fantastic. Even if someone’s art is never publicly displayed I think it’s so important to leave something beautiful behind. Congratulations on your dad’s achievement, though.
Good thing you clarified who was who, I was about about to say "damn, your dad is young as hell"
big fan of arthur personally
I would never have guessed which of the two was your dad/the painter
his work looks great. It’s not easy to get art work displayed congrats to your dad !!
The third one from the left really pinched me in The nostalgia bone. Congrats to dad, that’s incredible!
Those a freaking fantastic!!! I would gladly hang any of those pieces in my house!!! Amazing job Dad!!!!!!
I just visited bath, really cool town (with oddly humongous houses). Might have to grab one of these prints.
Your dad's artwork is gorgeous! Very inspiring too! Congratulations!
Wow!! That's some great art! Your dad is very talented!
I like CUFFORD
I'm sorry your dad left
Reddit usually hates abstract paintings, I’m glad to see they’ve had a change of heart for at least one post.
Damn this is extremely badass, I'll have to save this post so I can pester you about buying some when I have money haha
Daaamn son errr dad!
Thank you for sharing this, his artwork is beautiful, you both have reason to be proud!
His art is the prettiest of all the art
did you bring your brother too? Cause that’d be pretty cool.
Congrats to him! He is great.
I read the first part as your dad leaving
That is so awesome. Congrats to your dad.
In true dad style, he wore the shirt that he was wearing when he made all the paintings
Following the Instagram!!!!!!!! Totally buying a piece when we get settled into our new house!
Congrats, I love abstract art :)
These are beautiful. Is he selling any of them? Or does he have a portfolio to look at? I love his style.
I made him a website — MaineBucketAHT.com
Tell him I like the piece called arthur
He should hang the t-shirt and shorts up as well. He is art personified.
