Kidding aside..how does one "ignore" someone on these boards..Ive wasting enough of my time...you guys have my email.


Ah, Mr. Hate does it again. Big Grin

Just click on his name after you sign in, and hit the ignore button.

I will email you as well.

You used the word "hate" shortly after I used it in my post. Are you only pretending to Ignore me? Where are your principles?

MJ, I watched show #7 this morning.

I liked the winning piece, and agree with the judges.

Overall, I think this year has had much less to offer than last years talent.

What are your thoughts to date?

I enjoy the show for what it is. It is structured and timed which can be very disruptive to the creative process. I find some of the whining and crying annoying. Overall, no "wow", but entertaining.
A quality exhibit, I'm sure...he is a true master. Contemplating Velazquez' Los Borrachos, I couldn't help but think the spanish master must have already been exposed to Caravaggio's influence by the time it was painted. Either that, or he used the same model for Bbacchus that Caravaggio used so frequently. I've been fortunate enough to see a good many of Caravaggio's works.

A true masterpiece, and every accolade well deserved.

I am. Are you a fan?


We're going to his studio this weekend to pick up our first original.

He's quite a character - a true Renaissance Man. Do you like his work?

Cool BRAVO! Well done, Vin Toronto!

I saw a number of pieces in Paris in 2004 (?) that were clearly influenced by Motherwell and Kline that I liked. I saw a couple of pieces that made me think of the works of Tapies that I loved in an art journal recently.

I would enjoy seeing the piece you are buying.


Vin, did you buy?

Yes. We were to pick it up this weekend, but Mr. Hoffman graciously offered to have it framed for us at the same pricing he would receive. We will take possession sometime next week when it is complete. Smile

Drop me a note at <edited> and I would be happy to forward a pic of the finished product, and the story of how the piece was inspired by a line of my partner's poetry.

Vin, I just emailed you.

Please confirm you received my email, and I look forward to seeing the piece.

You may want to edit out your email address.
