I ate at a Colombian restaurant yesterday and they had Botero prints on the wall and I was reminded of how much I like this guy’s style. I haven’t seen any of his stuff other than the normal people scenes-or so I thought. I liked this picture so much that I decided to see if I could find it on the net in high definition:

When I typed in BING, “Botero”, I realized that I have seen (and liked) a lot more of his work than I thought! I thought this was old art until I saw a painting he did of the torture of the prisoners in Iraq. His sculptures are amazing! I found my favorite:

So, now that I am producing 3D images, I am going to try a couple of his pieces to see how they turn out. I will update this post when (and if) I get around to the attempt.
