Re: caring about drawing....(Kinkade:(

I don't think it's being representational is the problem...I think it's the blacklights (my students saw some at a gallery that required a blacklight to see certain qualities within his work)
I don't like his stuff either, so.....I don't buy it! But really, I don't care what he does...people spend their money in all kinds of crazy ways...

  They tried to give him a monthly column in American Artist (he is the highest paid artist in the world) and the outcry was so severe they let him go. I thought the readers were unnecessarily cruel in their comments.
  I don't like his art either but as artists I thought we were to be the most accepting of expression.
  It's funny how any form of art is acceptable in the fine art world unless it's representational.
