I can't fault him too much, I guess, if he did paint it. I can't paint anywhere near that good.

Well now he can claim himself an artist. How sad the term "artist" is been abused.


Looks better than half the crap that appears in modern galleries

Of course, to you, anything looks better in strips and stars.

I don't know what you're trying to suggest with that comment, I'm not even American. But if you think there's no truth to it, go enjoy modern Art.

Yes

 

 

My point was, and is, that Zimmerman's so called painting is no different from some works of modern "artist", as you posted here. And yet you feel compelled to rank him higher. Therefore evidently you like stars and stripes.

 

By the way, it's fine to cherry pick some "art" to make a point. But at the same point, let's not forget there are plenty of modern Artists, who do possess professional training and artistic inspirations. Let me cherry pick to balance yours:

Did I say its better than all modern art? No. You're making a big assumption, a wrong one.
