San Francisco Examiner: Last straw for art gallery and the web page for the gallery itself, while it lasts, is very instructive on what happens when art is sadly misunderstood. Consider how others might address the same theme quite casually and politically.
Portrait: portraits, portrait artist, portrait painting, custom oil portrait, portrait painter, custom portrait, oil portrait, portrait oil painting, oil portrait artist, oil paint portrait, painted portrait and they want your email address. Well, it's worth a peek. "Artists - Earn a $100k/yr. income." Let's see, there's also Thomas Kinkade as Kenneth Baker reviews him a while back or USA TODAY. Curiously, Hiddenbooke in Vallejo, if it's the same Hiddenbrooke Salon writes about two years ago, does not display the Kinkade name, but apparently the art criticisms endure, some related to the subdivision.
