    A few years back my oldman bought a painting for me at an auction. Some local cheap one.

    He decided to reframe the painting. Behind it he found a John )clinton maybe) sketch of a dog (do you know the artist who was famous for sketching hroses etc from UK)

    He didn't know if it was real or not. He suspected it was a copy but why was it behind the painting/

    When I left I gave it back to him and he has never had anyvody look at it.

    Odd thing to do but the old man says that he doesn't care the story is good enough.

    I like that one, but I wouldn't want it hanging on a wall at home.

    I went ot a modern art exibition once, spent ages looking at a red fire extinguisher. Felt a bit foolish when I relised that it was'nt part of the exibition.

    Well, I spent ages looking at a 'pissoir' which was openly mounted in an unlikely place without drainage.
    Felt a bit foolish when I realised that it was part of the exhibition.

    George Stubbs is perhaps the painter of 'horses' whom you are thinking of.

    Or you might be thinking of Higgins the 'House' painter.

    Or possibly even the white knights in Through the Looking Glass who painted the 'roses' red.

    I like art, and have done some digital art myself.

    Here are a few.

    I took this picture of a girl in harajuku and layered it over a landscape scene I made in Bryce graphic software..


    The blur in this pic is natural (from the camera) ...but I used a couple of special effects to make it look nice..


    This picture I drew by hand, and then scanned it and put it through some photoshop filters..

    I took this pic in harajuku also - then used some really easy photoshop filters to make it look trippy. Some of my favorite pics I made when I was still experimenting with the software...

    This is my dear friend Billy taking a pee in my loo. He was the bass player in a band called Guitar Wolf. Sadly, he passed away last year.

    I think Aging One's kids could do Rothko quite easily.
