Re: Art of reply:P

Maybe they didn't log in
Maybe they didn't decide
Maybe they decided not to bother
Maybe they already posted on the thread.
Maybe many things....

For what its worth, I thought that you got an amazing reaction to your paintings on the thread without any of the usual public forum vitriol. Personally I was expecting some of your flowery language to be "bitten" by the masses, but you escaped

I'd just take what you get and don't get too upset about the rest

Re: Art of reply:P

I have to bite, sorry. Using CAPS online is considered shouting. PMs or bipolar or not, c'est la vie.

As per an artist not having a response you would accept as appropriate, I am sure people in galleries do not have clients who would come back and thank the selling wenches for effort with their selling if they don't want to buy. While art is a part of you, the min you want to sell it, you become a customer service person. Quicker you understand it, more you sell. By the way, there is nothing more noble about an artist than there is about a customer service person. That's why I hesitate selling my creations, though, music excluded, but we gave away always more than we sold, heh.

I am bored because my swiss friendboy isjust watching a german something series!!!

so,internet here islike in 1997.........slow and keeping you begging for more

so I decided toadd few words

There is a very interesting painting of acow here in the cottage that we rented...........I have been staring at it more thanfew times (my space bar is not really working)........... and its interesting! I have been wandering how much meand the artist have in common........More than i would like,given the subject!!!! The background is roughly painted in carmison red,and the portrait ofacow isdone in afast, good(for the speed) represantation of a muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh look, andforthemodern addition- it isnot only brown but blue and purple and orange!!!!!!! Hey-the outcomeis much better than mycinicism alowes me to addmit!

and now,because I have somehow drawn the attention of my honney (by ignoring him???? ) I say ..............till the next time love nlight n laughter n ..............well- you know

So here I am, back in my dear couch))) Watching Hichikers guide to the galaxy, for a milionth time (read the book at least 10 times....yes,yes-masterpiece!)

On the subject

Art Of Reply

was not intended as a disscusion, for the obviosity(yes-its an invented word) of the - obvious! (to me at least)
I shold have said from the beggining though


I wish to inform all the colourful members of the EF that I fully expect a curtacy of a "thank you" answer to any information provided to them (on their request)from me- the noble artist,sales person,art lover,waitress,bumm,trillioner,pink elephant or anything else that I may choose to present my self as.

Thank You for Your Understanding
