This guy is some creative artist... he makes me want to dig into my scraps and come up with something just as avant-garde...

Though I have never met you, I feel deeply compelled to thank you for the greatness you have shown throughout your lifetimes' work. Jean-Michel, your art has deeply impacted me and others, and I feel regret that you became estranged of the demand this world has put onto you.
I understand your compassion to humanity, especially ethnicity, and wished to have been able to meet you and gain a thourough understanding of your experiences that drove your creativity. Your art is touching and telling. Be safe, where you are.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for being able to enjoy the lessons of a great art-teacher. I have enjoyed his knowledge and his encouragement in both Contemporary art and Art-Appreciation. The amount of knowledge that I have gathered and the depth of art that he pushed his students to grasp has truly enlarged my horizon. In only a few months my appreciation for art has more than doubled as I have more understanding for art and realize its impact in our culture and our history. Thank you Mr. Parente

Hung Liu, The Trophy, 2001, oil on canvas, 114 x 78
This painting has captured me because I had done a lot of research about the developing countries, and the way the children are carrying the plane that crashed with pride and nobility touches me deeply.
I did enjoy the depth of the painting and the strength of message.
