Sorry, I meant to say works from ASC members. I only saw one or two from Bruce so far. Those who had something to say in this thread might have something to show I suppose.

This forum, this thread in this forum, on this board, is most appropriate, is most civil, retains decorum, and absolutely belongs. It's refreshing. To suggest it could destroy ASC is bogus. Instead, what it does is stimulate our belief in ourselves and our co-artists here. It allows us to believe that we are not alone, that others also THINK. While we might not agree, we see here, in this thread, that we can discuss points of view without castigation from others and without moderation by owners/moderators. Of course it belongs. Of course.

Would another thread be appropriate for such an exchange, not a critique of technique, but an evaluation of the content on a gut level reaction? Maybe , its too much. My experience, at shows, people ask "What is this painting about?",.......... and what I would like to say is "If I could put it in words, I would....What do you think?" Is any one interested in giving it a try.
