Whoo, not feeling these new artists. I'll vote to keep Luini and Wadsworth. Which leaves me with 2 anti-votes. I'll vote against Landseer's stupid animals and Houdon, who's super boring.

Elliott said...

Landseer, Wadsworth, Zuccarelli and a negative vote against Bomberg.

Nora said...

Landseer, Wadworth, Zuccarelli and Bomberg.

Hmm, yes... Let's say Luini and Wadsworth. And Lawrence. Zuccarelli looks pretty OK in this lineup, but that's mostly about this lineup, and I'm not votin' for him.

Susan says "Landseer, Luini, & Wadsworth."

So Wadsworth gets the week off, Zuccarelli's in second, and Landseer and Luini are with us for another cycle.
