    My present one is because I have had a lifelong love affair with Spaghetti Westerns and The Man with No Name in all his manifestations. Yojimbo, A Fistful of Dollars, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly etc...it's the attitude, the ironic detachment.

    some people think the man with his back turned is a self-portrait by Hopper, but there's not really any evidence one way or another.

    i agree that the lightfastness and 'trueness' of the phthalocyanine colors make them most excellent.
    i have almost no knowledge of the chemistry of paints, i only know them from a painter's persepctive, an aesthetic perspective.
    i have less of a theoretical knowledge of paints, and more knowledge based on my own experience.
    but i know what i like.

    the phthalo colors seem very versatile to me. they change so much when they are thinned, and it seems like when they are mixed they aren't lost in the mix, they alter the mixed color without completely dominating it.
    wheras cadmium colors are more like "hey, i'm cadmium. i only know how to do one thing."

    yeah, that is a character and series that i am especially attracted to also.
    i really am drawn to the characters that Clint plays; dirty harry, his character in Gran Torino, etc.

    The Good The Bad And The Ugly is one of my favorite movies, besides clint's character i especially like the dynamics between the three main characters- Blondie, Tuco, and Angel Eyes.
