Dredged Up From The Archives

Occasionally, when someone introduces that confusing and loaded word 'art' to a conversation, I recoil similarly in shock and horror as these poor fellows seem to be doing! Nooooo! Not art! Anything but art! Lets talk weather! Religion! Politics! Mountain bike components!

Intriguing image and nice watercolour.

Cive: I agree that Mountain Bike Components is a waaay easier subject to talk about. Why do you think that one fella in the painting is gesticulating so energetically?...he's talkin Art and NOT Mountain Bike Components. This piece was painted circa 1998 from a B@W photo I took circa 1976! It was taken in Los Angeles, and is two guys working at putting up the letters on a theater (oops...your Canadian. I meant "theatre" as in "colour") marquee (spelling?).

Heh heh...I didn't even realize you spelt theatre theater!
