Just cause someone has an opinion doesn't make it a mean comment. He's technically gifted, as I said before. He can render more realistically than I can. Am I jealous? No, because, in my OPINION, the work is a bit overwrought and melodramatic. I don't think I'm the greatest artist in the world, but that doesn't render me unable to have an opinion. It's certainly sweet that he thinks so highly of Neil that he painted the portrait, and that has merit. But, if I were in Neil's shoes, and this is just me, I would be flattered but also feel a little uncomfortable about owning such a super-DRAMA-tique portrait of myself. That's all. No mean-ness intended.
