  7. Hi,
    I just found you through Marco's blog.
    I have to say that this is one of the funniest blogs I have seen in a long time. I am so glad to have found you.
    I went right through the whole blog, your are very witty and this is such a great take on the masters. I can imagine people walking round the National Gallery, looking thoughtful and all along making up witty comments in their heads.
    Kind regards
    Lia
