Synopsis

After a bad day at the water park, Homer becomes self-conscious about his weight. When getting exercise equipment, he discovers Marge's old Ringo Starr paintings and the family discovers Marge's secret talent in the arts. Marge goes back to art school to rediscover her love for painting. Her works gather such a fanbase that even Mr. Burns commissions her to do a painting of him for his art exhibit. Marge now has the difficult task of finding beauty out of such a soulless monster.
