Aw, I like Patenier. Just not enough to oust Picasso.

I was tempted to go Patinir here, but looking at Picasso's full catalog (aka 2 pages of a Google images search), has me back to voting for the favorite.

Hey, I like both! Patenier, with no hard feelings if Picasso wins.

Hey, I like Patenier too, but jeez. Picasso for sure.

I am liking Patenier more and more and, with the Mademoiselles, we're starting to see some of what I like less about Picasso, but I'll still land on the Picasso side.

Susan votes for Patenier.

Candida said...

Heh. I was just looking at the art and forgot to look at the names, and I was all, "Wow, wonder who the poor sucker is who's going up against Patenier!"

Goes to show how much I still have to learn.... But my vote's still for the great Patenier over that obscure "Picasso" guy.

Michael5000 said...

Well, I'll be! At the minimum quorum, we've got four votes for Pablo Picasso and five for somebody called "Joachim Patenier." It's an upset! It's an upset!!! Joachim Patenier is going to the Fourth Round!!!
