A little frightening, but El Greco seems to be growing on me. I'm still going to vote for Gauguin.

You know what? I'm going to say El Greco.

El Greco by a mile

Fun fact: There is still a little bit of cognitive confusion in my little brain between "El Greco" and "Jimmy the Greek."

El Greco by a humid, tropical mile.

And it's El Greco by a humid, tropical mile, pulling away from his fellow big name with a score of 8-3.

I do not predict that things will get easier for him in the next round. However, I am often surprised by these things. Thanks for voting!
