    2. SIGN IT anywhere you want,any size that you want.IT BELONGS TO YOU PLAY.30 years ago I did a landscape,I dislike landscapes more than celery,and I hate celery.1 foot by 3 feet,a road a barn,a fence etc.Then I practiced signing in an area 1’X 3′.After 17 times I had the swing of it then I signed OVER the painting on the whole surface.I made the line of the signiture one inch thick with highlights from top right,and shadow bottom left.Called it. “EGO for a walk in the country” Get it?..He go/ego.

    3. I have been in TAD for since the beginning. haha, this means I am in my 2nd seesetmr. about a year ago I had to make the decision on which art school would be best for me. I wanted the best education in the quickest time at the lowest price. I found TAD and I moved to Austin to be in a POD. After being here for almost 1 year, I know I made the right choice and I have been inundated with quality information and great friends. Thanks to Gurney for this awesome promo for the school

    4. Herbert, you seem to have the type of personality that is always at odds with others, being full of yourself and overall obnoxious. This man is doing his thing …. just as you demand your right to do your thing – and you knock him.Why don’t you practice what mothers have taught for generations? “If you can’t say something nice, just practice the gift of SHUT UP!”

    5. NO, do not put a date on the face of your painting. Print a sticker of AUTHENTICITY. On it, put the date painted, the name of the piece, the medium you used to paint it (oil, acrylic, etc), and sign it with your name. Then, stick it to the back of your canvas, preferably in an area where you used color on the front … that way, you don’t see the outline of your sticker as you see the face of the canvas. Hope this helps.Bruce Ball – the_artist_n_you@yahoo.com

    6. Most of the greatest old masters did not sign their paintings. Later it became more popular to sign, or perhaps more necessary commercially after art patronage ended. Finally, along came egotistical artists of much more limited skill, like Rauschenberg, who made sure to sign halfway across the canvas, in ALL CAPS!!! hahaha. Oh, I just wanted to add one more thing here: I like celery.
