I'm thinking more the line of buildings that becomes a wall. Although I'm not certain Wiggins thought of them that way.

The second piece is one of those 'late to the table' impressionists.

It reminded me of Paris on a day in late spring.

Given the almost uniform height of many buildings in Paris ... I can see that. You're probably closer to what it represents than I.

And of course there were many French artists of the Impressionist period who painted street scenes with buildings marching off to a vanishing point. And certainly many have painted similar scenes since.

A couple from a more bird's-eye perspective:

I was joking. You had the same image up twice, or maybe something was wrong with my browser.

You're fast ... I did for a few seconds. But remember ... I'm old ... I forget quickly unless reminded.

Looking for an up and coming sculptor for a commissioned piece. We are commissioning pieces of art for our wedding that thematically represent different aspects of our relationship. We are open to various different types of sculptures. Wood, metal, clay, etc... Would love to review websites, examples of work, etc and meet with a few.

We want to collaborate with the artist and have the idea be an original conception and can be abstract or realistic. We have chosen this medium to represent our love for the Chicago Bears. I do hope this doesn't turn anyone away by the commercial nature of the subject matter. We still want this to be about us not just the football team. I hope to find someone excited by the overall concept and interested in being a part of a collection of pieces. Looking forward to hearing from all artists.

One of my favorite artists is retiring. He's decided to make all of his works into an installation piece for his first retrospective, hanging them from the center of the Guggenheim and leaving the galleries empty.

Mr. Cattelan’s entire artistic output... hangs in a gigantic distended mass from cables connected to an aluminum truss near the top of the museum’s rotunda. Titled “All,” it fills one of the most famous architectural voids in the world with what surely ranks as one of the largest, most complicated, visually muddled mobiles in the history of art.

I would love the see this exhibit. He's also one of my favorites and has really earned my respect by not being afraid to use taxidermy.

Very nice. And he's got the same forename as I do. Props for that, too.

Roy Lichtenstein painting sells for $43MM at Christie's:

I have never understand this guy's appeal. Really slap-dash, uninspired art that I have always disliked.
