    I'm sure there are two artists who painted that. *thinks hard*. I know Klimt was one, I think maybe Mondrian was the other... i can't remember but I saw it in one book and I had seen the other the other day and I put them together and I was : :eek:

    Oh and a painting I saw in a temporary gallery in the Trafford Centre that I should have bought (even though it was £1000 - I should have just got it and worried about finding the money later) called "fun on the beach" a massive picture of two serious looking gentlemen with the beach in the background one of them absolutely screaming at the other - their faces were about 5 foot tall and took up almost all of the picture and the expressions were absolutely wonderful...it had me and hubby in hysterics for hours (we kept nipping back in for another look) and would have looked fabulous on our kitchen wall.

    Should have bought the thing....

    This is a klimt one - he did two similar paintings - one was a lot darker and the other one had bluebells...I like the one with bluebells most

    I'm sure it's a pretty common subject...or at least for any artists who like forests/woods like I do (I'm very annoyed with big brother for stealing my idea to have a wall papers with a blown up photo of trees - that's been my plan for our spare room for years)

    Just read that Canterbury travel thing - SHOCKING!!
    What they did to us was far worse (bound by potential legal stuff not to explain though (although there's a breif rundown on the moaning thread somewhere - I figured the lawyers are unlikey to subscribe))

    It looks much better in original, but to see it you'd have to go to St.Peterburg

    Wasn't trying to be a pedant (I only knew the difference via google - I just call em the one with and without the bluebells )

    (and I intend to - and once we've got some compensation I intend to publicise all over the web/newspapers/watchdog/radio etc etc how shockingly bad they are at dealing with their customers - and how shambolic they are at dealing with complaints (our solicitor read the letters they'd sent in response to our 2 complaint letters and her reaction was "I'm absolutley disgusted and I want this woman fired!" ))
