Maybe it is just my kids, but they sure love to have free days--"home days" is usually what they call them.

Mariah says Renoir on Facebook. Rick C., I'm going to let your clickbait spam comment sit for now, because it's fun to pretend that you made it when you were really, really stoned.

Joshua, because he is actually capable of painting different people and capturing their different features.

Tough break for Reynolds here, it's Renoir for me.

I like them both, and I don't like either of them. Renoir.

I don't really know this Reynolds feller, but I quite like the examples here. However, I've also played the "what painting would I take home from this museum room" and ended up with a Renoir enough times that I'll stick with him in the first round, at the very least.

Renoir, but I'm awfully glad that Reynolds lived and painted too.

Renoir struggles early before pulling away strong in the stretch, winning easily ten votes to three.
