Haven't you BEEN this person???

I know I have!! The close up view is always my favorite... And you're right, Robin... those guards start on their way over each time.

I got a talking to by a guard for doing the same thing!! Can't help it - that brushwork demands a closer inspection.

beautiful work! I have set off buzzers more often than I want to admit by doing this sort of thing in my quest to examine great works!

The Most Interesting Man in the World commercials say: he is allowed to touch the paintings in museums. Perhaps this is that guy.

I want to report that I saw your paintings at the HM in Kirkland and the collection is wonderful.
