The link does not work.
I can picture you as an art collector. I'm wishing I would have bought a painting my ex's grandmother had. I can't recall the painters name but it was a beautiful surreal painting of a ship and crew. She bought and sold antiques. Every once in awhile she'd get a goody. My mom has a few things I picked up from her back when.
I had this furniture that I believe is outstanding art. It is black lacquer all inlaid in mother of pearl and abalone shells. The details in the carvings are outstanding. The one piece has the four seasons in it, a table with a tiger and an eagle the ocean waves and pine trees in the background and another has a small village scene with deer. The stuff takes up so much room it has been at my mom's for ages now. Plus it takes a place that is safe and kept at certain temperature to keep it. Someone stole a tiger painting I had that was overlaid in gold while we were here in Iowa one year. I'll see if I can find some pics and put them up for you.
That reminds me of a guy that had me paint a snow storm on his windows one year... I told him are you sure that's what you want? He said yeah. Okay you pay the bill....

wait let me find a pic that does it justice (deep sardonic voice)
