Every once in a while it's fun to just go to a show, stand back and say wow.

If you are so inclined, you can then go upstairs and see the Annie Liebovitz show (which I liked better than some of my friends) and the guy from England who does the huge naked people.
Walton Ford is like Audobon on acid. You do the math.

Visually communicating the majesty of the stuff defies the meager parameters of this blog, but I can tell you this: If I could paint like this guy, you think I'd be sitting here, talking to you guys?
