I am enjoying both, but will vote for Long.

Longhi. Because everyone should wear a mask when they visit the zoo.

Longhi's pictures are pretty interesting, in a "what's the rhino doing there" sort of way. But I'm sure he's that great of an artist, so I will vote for Richard "Walk This Way" Long.

I'm not usually one for "bits of stuff on the floor" art, but reading more, this Long guy sounds kinda cool. Compared to Clara the rhinoceros who spent 17 years touring the royal palaces of Europe? Well...maybe if it was Dürer's rhinoceros... I'll go Long.

I got the second artist, but I'm not nuts about it. That little kid in the foreground looks so little! He's like two feet tall but looks like an adult, but not a midget. It's all very unsettling.

Longhi.

Here's an emailed vote for Longhi.

Long - though the carnival costumes definitely make that rhinoceros painting strangely compelling.

Longhi's scenes are pretty charming, but I too will go Long.

Richard "Walk This Way" Long for me.

Candida said...

Longhi, though I like Long better than some.

And it Long still standing and Longhi on the floor after the votes clear. With an 8-5 margin, the indoor land artist moves on to Round Two.
