    I love Andrew Wyeth paintings. Here is one from his "Helga Pictures". I believe it was done in tempera.

    Yes, there is sort of a Tim Burton sensibility to El Greco, isn't there.

    On the other hand, the Dutch masters used models as well padded as the back seat of a '59 El Dorado. Witness Rembrandt:

    Tim Burton is directing my life. I'm positive of it.

    That's quite lovely. It deserves a larger image.

    That bastard. We'll get him... we'll put Ron Howard on the job, and you'll be guaranteed a happy ending!

    Now... about the Wyeths... their work could be as iconic as any Medieval European's.

    oooooo!!! I used to really find no real charm in Von Gogh, but recently, I've begun to appreciate the complexity of his paintings, especially the color combinations. He must have had a perfect eye for color. The second one is very appealing!

    Yeah, color is my favorite element of art, and I love his vibrant use of deep blues and golds. He plays the opposites on the color wheel off each other very nicely.
