Matisse. That first Matta reminds me unpleasantly of this week's gallbladder surgery.

In this tournament of awesomeness, Matisse is one of the most awesomely awesomest.

Me: I've never really felt the Matisse love. This Chilean guy, now, he's kind of expanding on doodles on the cover of his Chemistry class notebook, but he's doing it really well. And I love those contained explosions of pure primary color in his second one. I'M GOING FOR MATTA!! SOY UN MATTADOR!!!

Susan writes to vote for Matisse, one of her all-time faves I believe. Actually, she wrote in quite a while ago, but I've been behind on the old email, and everything else.

And Matisse tears it up, winning by, like, 14 votes to 3. Such is the rough-and-tumble world of art!
