 Thank you! I really wasn't sure how it would work at this scale, so if you folks like it, I'm much happier... lol

 Awesome, I'd venture to bet you are a trained artist!

 Self-trained. My mother never approved of my taking art too seriously.

 er... real work?? (laughing weakly) I've probably produced as much here as in my whole life! hm... well... maaaaybe not, but I really do very little. Look up Qsilv on Flickr to see 3 of my "real" pieces.

 The simplicity is what makes this so special. You caught it in a nutshell.

 Qsilv, will you contact my email (matthew@gradysbilliards.com)? I have a "how to" question for you so I can prove once and for all that I am not the OVB... Thanks...
34. matthew wrote:
 I don't want to ask here, because I don't want the proof manipulated...

 What a F'n joke that this was hit... It is sure to make the top 2 in flowers anyway, but... for God's sake, what a load of crap... (sighs & wanders off)...

 People need to grow up. This is just stupid.

 How daft is this? Roll on the system changes.
52. marg wrote:
 you've got to be joking.. OK, for the 1st time since I voted my first pic a 1, I'll vote for my own pic, just to get it off the top page
53. jshundo wrote:
 You deserve top 5... this system is ridiculous!
54. polenta wrote:
 I want to apologize to you Qsilv because my pic VIVA ITALIA is just next to this one Leonardo in the Italy showcase. Yours should be so so so much above mine which is funny or nice, while yours is a real masterpiece. It's not my fault, I can't do anything

 sad....but greatness can never be buried.

 WHOA! That is a pure geinus picture!
58. polenta wrote:
 I congratulate all May Top 5ers. They all deserve that honor. "Leonardo" is not a Top 5. It's a TOP ONE. It's out of competition. I fell in love with "Leonardo" the moment I saw its thumbnail.
59. marg wrote:
 I totally agree with polenta's last 4 statements.

 Well, we all know that this should be up there on Top 5 ... and no amount of kicking around can take that away from you.

 This is genius... wish there was some way to put it in the current (Leonardo da Vinci) showcase.
