Rene Magritte

OK, this week is gonna get arty. You have been forewarned. Belgian Rene Magritte is my all-time favorite and doesn't get the recognition he deserves. If you only know him from "The Son Of Man", dig a little deeper. He thought of painting as a job just like a baker, mailman, etc. He wore a suit, kept 9 to 5 hours, took a break for lunch like any normal business man. The different was, of course, he was creating surreal masterpieces.
