Richard T Scott I heard you were kicked off FB! That's absolutely ridiculous!

Steven DaLuz Richard...yes I was. I have no idea what photo was so offensive it deserved disabling my account! And I don't know who would have such a sensitive (vindictive) constitution they would feel the need to report it. Not much I can do about it.
Otto Rapp Steven - I had put this in my collection of my showdown favorites. I voted for it some time ago already! My friend Richard Scott passed on some news about vote counts, and I need to tell you I experienced the same, as did one other friend. Just wondering how many more are out there? Since then, my count seems frozen in spite of many confirmed votes. I am not going to speculate now, but am awaiting the outcome of this contest.

Steven DaLuz Thanks, Otto. I voted yours already as well! You are right...there is something fishy going on. In the end, it's really about who can muster the votes. I am not asking for votes at all this time around...what happens, happens. Bets of luck to you!

Margaret R Murphy Dear Stephen, I was perplexed that you deleted me as a friend on facebook. I was wondering did I offend you in anyway, but to my knowledge I feel I did not. But I have just logged on here and it seem that facebook closed you account. This just does not make sense at all as I am familiar with all of your paintings and there was never anything that was in bad taste. Would you not start up a new page as I am aware of another artist that was in the same position as you. They just started over again
Lia Melia Beautiful work Steven; this was one painting I really hoped would reach the finals. Your sense of colour is impeccable, and the richness and depth of surface you achieve is remarkable.

Steven DaLuz Thank you, Lia--you are very kind. As you probably know...this contest really is not so much about the quality of the artwork. It is entirely based upon who can muster the most votes. That's unfortunate--but, that's the way it is I'm afraid. :)

Mindy Swank Steven, this is great work! I'm showing this to my daughter Monica who is taking an art class in high school so she can see your work and get her to view artwork that is current...
