    I would have painted it white. I'm into abstract art.

    Now that is "deep". I can hear people now "it shows change is pointless", "it shows the emptiness of being".

    Red is so obvious. :wink:

    LOL. A few months ago my girlfriend and I were browsing an art exhibition that started off nicely with Van Goghs and such, but quickly degenerated into escalating scales of boring 'abstract' art. I said to her "I bet the next one we see will just be a blank canvas." Wouldn't you know it, soon after we came across a piece called "Presence" that was just a white, featureless canvas!

    I'm mostly upset that the guy beat me to it. I could have had a piece of art displayed in a public gallery if only I had visited an exhibition a few months earlier!

    It takes many years of introspection and contemplative meditation in order to appreciate that blank canvas...and don't you forget it!

    Actually, The Joker, on the old Batman TV show beat him to it. He was pretending to be reformed, no longer caring about crime, he only cared about art. One of his masterpieces was a blank canvas. POW!
