I have a VanKampen in my home, and appreciate the talent, whether freaky or not.

Do not be afraid of your inner most feelings. Art is a visionary, painting what every man desires or the hypocrisy of society.

Well, I for one like freakish. And legs. And pleated skirts!

I'm not so certain why the top image asks in whether we trust God. I suppose it's because of the attractive and tempting pair of female legs next to it, and God says, "You best be wary of that or it'll end you up in trouble."

It reminds me of when I worked in a liquor store one summer and this guy came through my line and bought $100 worth of alcohol. He commented, "There was a day I would have spent this at a strip club. I later learned that I'd be better off burning the money and taking a cold shower."

You know, if you want to be taken as a serious artist you need to not be so freakish.
