Well, I still liked Rafael's more...but Andrew's is very lovely too.

I'll stick with Angela. Andrew's work looks gruesome, but maybe that's his subject. Interesting he chose to do 3 portraits. Could this be the new trend?

Maybe Hirst should have done 3 sharks.

A trio of sharks? Trebly gruesome! He's into "triptychs" in a big way, so it's possible. Did you check out that last website I posted? Bad pictures in threes....
