              Roth's work was, and still is, all over the hot rod scene.  He's best known for his Rat Fink which is a big green mouse.

                I enjoy the paintings of a myriad of artists, those that draw their pictures and then paint them. (Apparently, now many so-called painters project a photo, draw the outline and then paint. To me something like paint-by-number kits.) Anyway, my favorite American artist is Andrew Wyeth; European artist, Vinent Van Gogh; Canadian Thomas Thomson and Christopher Pratt.

    Why dont we organise a Hub Exhibition - A Hub dedicated to our own contributions to the Art world - I am no techno head - so someone else would have to organise it - or perhaps we could have a thread dedicated to our art - I dont even know how to publish a pic on the threads - can it be done - Come on someone - we can take a few weeks to get it together and then announce the opening of the exhibition - come on smile
