The Q's didn't last anywhere near as long as the P's did...

I love the skating portrait. Quercia might have won the sub-contest "Infinite Art Tournament for Q," but he does not get my vote this round.

Definitely Dell Quercia

I do like the skating guy. But I'm with Elliott, Della Quercia deserves to win this one.

Raeburn. Skating guy is cool, giant head baby is weird. One of the side-effects of motherhood seems to be extreme discomfort with unrealistic infants and children in fine art.

I'm not sure that Raeburn is more than a one-hit wonder, but it's a good hit, and I'll vote for it.

I was voting strongly for della Quercia all the way until I hit Raeburn.

And Raeburn takes it by a frosty, ice-skating mile, nine votes to two!
