    Would look perfect in the all-red Bourbon Bar at Q Club in Seattle — why not sell it to Scott for some exorbitant sum?

    Here’s something I bet you don’t know about Scott. He’s pathologically cheap. It’s a disease, really. He can’t help it. He’s always been this way and I came to accept it years ago. I actually have other friends and family like that. It doesn’t matter though because, at the end of the day, they all come through in their own way when I need them the most. I am, however, finished with donating works to the Scott Smith Museum of Contemporary Art. He has a particularly beautiful one over his fireplace. And another one in his bedroom. And another one…

      Jeez, I never thought of him as cheap. Look how much he spends on clothes, for instance…………………..

        With HIS brass, I think he grew the white beard so he can shoplift stuff, then come back and ask for the Senior Discount on it.

    A critique if I may?

    I find this picture radiates a cold and latent violence whilst still maintaining an element of disconcerting beauty and visual seductiveness.
    There are moments of evocative atmosphere and suspense.
    Initial ambiguity coupled with improper function leads to indistinctiveness with the complete structure never shown.
    It shows a world of ongoing equilibrium punctuated by human drama.
    Aesthetically pleasing yet full of mondernist paradigms.

    p.s. Oh, and I like the little square window at the top and the fish at the bottom!

    p.p.s Just thought this might help Scott to see the inherent value in this work!

    (hope you don’t think I’m taking the piss!! My tounge is firmly planted in my cheek!)
