Dave, I don't know anything about their whereabouts, but while I was watching that with my wife, I just about (expletive-deleted) myself about how cool that is! I was thinking while watching it, you could only see the back of the canvas, "Eh, probably not very good..." but when they reveled the finished pieces... WOW--he's good--really good!
Been working on a sketch, for my second painting, of myself in my gear: I have one done, but want to have at least two before I post them here. My work is rather "illustrative" in style, reminiscent of National geographic of the 1950-60's.
TD, good for you for reaching out to him! It's always nice when someone famous responds: it's very humanizing, that is, it makes the person that much more real and admirable.
Being a good artist is hard work, and coming up with real ideas, not someone else's, is half of what makes it so difficult: the other half is talent. Art is very subjective, and for some of us, you don't get appreciated until you're dead... So good for Mr. Laban
