B.C. states:

Je te salue des marais du pied du mont Hood. Le chien se taise ce soir. La visibilité brouillée par la pluie fatigue les yeux. Peu importe. Laisse béton, comme on l'at dit dans les anées quatre-vignt. Allons donc aux urnes.

I like them all so much I'd like to vote for them all, I can't so I'll vote for none to avoid privileging any.

Je te souhaite une bonne matinée.

I'm going to snub the new guys, and go with Kiefer, De Hooch, Hodler, and Orpen.

Me, I'll go the 75% Mrs.5000 route with De Hooch, Hodler, and Orpen, but sub Man Ray for Kiefer. I don't get Kiefer.

Elliott said...

Orpen, Hodler, and Sutherland.

Vote against Kiefer

Hi so my first vote is Sutherland. I like the first one a lot better than the second . I love the detail in the first and the colors they used. my second vote is Buren. I like all the different shapes they used and how they played around with shaped and color and how we see things. My third vote is Orpen. again I love the detail and the shadow contrast in the first one. The woman in the painting has a really interesting look on her face. It is so realistic it looks like a photo.In the second I like how they played around and made the people look see through like ghosts and how it makes you wonder what exactly is happening in the art work and what the story behind it is. my fourth and final vote is Hooch. I love the detail on the bricks and the rest of the artwork and I love how they set the seen. that's all for now! THANKS!
