Vote for the two artists of your choice! Votes generally go in the comments, but have been known to arrive by email, by postcard, or in a sealed envelope.

Please note that you may vote only once in each face-off.  Opining that both of the artists in one of the two face-offs is superior to the other is fine, but casting your votes for two artists in the same face-off is not permissible.

Well, the first one is easy, Dou. The second one? You know, I'm gonna say Millais.

And don't forget, Merz made some really cool igloos!

Susan goes for Dou and Millet.

And it's Dou over Merz easily in the top match, igloos notwithstanding, 8 votes to 3. In the homonym bowl, it's Millet 6 votes, Millais, and "The Gleaner" squeaks through to Round 2 by the skin of his teeth.

Millet 6 votes, Millais 5 votes, I should have said.
