I must say, that is a pretty nice looking painting. I am not an art person at all, I like photographs, and in particular, my own photographs. But given the chance to own some of these works of art, I would. Not only would they be a great conversation starter, they would look real nice on the walls of my bunker.

I really like this one “Cathedral in Vienna.” Actually, if I had to choose, I would choose these 3 on the page from the group of ten here. I like buildings, and landscapes best. I would totally buy one of them, a real one, or a reproduction, I don’t care. I also would accept donations.
Also, for what it’s worth, his signature is not very great, makes me wonder about the authenticity of that scene from Indiana Jones.
