    Better have a big kitty. The photograph is 11 feet long.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Photo auction prices

    funny ... i looked at the image in question and liked more than a lot of his work. the first thought that crossed my mind is "this would look nice at a reasonable size .. no need for it to be huge." and then i saw it was 13 x 19 inches. pretty mortal sounding by his standards.

    does he do much small(ish) work? maybe his addicts .. i mean, collectors ... only like it huge.
