El Greco, a fine artist. His Conde of Orgasz is where I get my avatar head shot from.

Yes, I've noticed that.

El Greco is my favorite artist, and my favorite painting - which I had the pleasant surprise of seeing in person last year - is this one.

I had the good fortune of seeing the Burial of the Count of Orgaz in person in Toledo (Spain, not Ohio) a few years ago. It was an amazing piece of art.
