Namatjira. Repin. Seiwert.

And GOLDSWORTHY. Why is Goldsworthy so good? I don't understand

Michael5000 said...

Morgan, I've wondered that too. I think it's one of those 10% inspiration 90% perspiration sorta dealies. He has vision, but then he applies an out-of-this-world standard of meticulous craftsmanship to its execution. (He's going to get one of my votes too. Can you tell?)

What a mix. Ok, Goldsworthy, McPherson, Dodd, Namatjira.

...and that wraps it up for Flight 12, and for all of Phase I of the Play-In Tournament! Moving on to Phase II are Goldsworthy, who logged a massive .923 voting average; Repin, at .615, and -- tied for third -- Namatjira and the late-surging Lois Dodd, who both scored .462.
