abstract painting feat. the papped Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton

We favour the simple expression of the complex thought. We are for the large shape because it has the impact of the unequivocal; the presentation of the concept of seed and its earth with all its brutal implications; the impact of elemental truth. Would you have us present this abstract concept, with all its complicated feelings, by means of a boy and girl lightly tripping? It is just as easy to explain the Hibernian Beaver as a new interpretation of an archaic image. But living far from Pleasant Valley as he did, he seldom heard any news before it was quite old, involving unprecedented distortions. It is therefore a risky act to send it out into the world.
