Maybe we should all send e mails to the station and tell them our viewpoints. They may not know how professionals feel unless someone tells them. We could suggest some other artists to highlight that would be more palatable. Just a thought. Judy

  His paintings are 'pretty', they don't make me wonder, they don't awe me or keep me looking, in fact, I don't even think about his use of any artistic elements when I look at them because they are so damn boring.

  Karen, one of the couples who was interviewed spoke to this them, the little cottage with the smoke coming out made them wonder about the who, why, and so on, and made them feel "soft & fuzzy", when they comtemplated the pics.
  So maybe for some people, these pics fill a void, it just made me sad that these trite images were being touted to such a degree as fine art.
