After a group art show that included works by Jim the Painter, a girl friend of his,relayed
to Jim comments that she had overheard at the show. This was done discretely.The comments are in no particular order:

It is truly fine art, I felt edified after having viewed Jim's work.//
Jim's work is a waste of good art material.//
I hope he continues to crank-out those abstract designs,I like them.//
I took a chance and went to Jim's website, and while there, I almost laughed myself silly.//
Most of his abstract designs can only be described as gauche.//
Based on what I have seen of this chap's work, I must
conclude that he is either a genius or a lunatic.//
