Re: What is your favorite work of art?
Favorite is hard to say. I'm from Chicago so have a soft spot for some of the major pieces in the Art Institue, probably as much for sentimental reasons as anything else. If I was locked in a room forever and only could look at one piece of art, it would probably be a painting my best friend did of me and a few buddies at Paul Bunyan's cook camp in Minoqua, Wisconsin. Its watercolor on wood and the colors and texture bring me instantly to that moment.
