Gregg, You start the rumor that I am dead, and I'll begin the rumor that you are dead, then we can each begin selling each other's art work to the greedy world who only puts big price tags on artwork after the artist is dead and gone!
Beat them at their own game, beat THEM to Death with it, then we will sell their stuff!
Think of all the poor French coal miners Van Gogh could have fed (the reason he began painting) with just a few millions of dollars from just one of his paintings.
He had been their preacher but got fired because he gave away ALL of his church paycheck to feed the miners, I guess it was too extreme of an example for the rest of the clergy to follow.
