    I recently visited the Dali museum in Florida. It's fantastic. Dali might have sold out as far as doing all he could to generate money but I love the guy.

    Is the portrait of Lincoln still there?

    I went there a few years ago. I was on a business trip and had the evening to myself, so I decided to take a drive over and check it out. It's not often I get to Florida. The Dali Museum was amazing. I'm really glad I went.

    It makes me a little nervous though, seeing all those incredible works of art stored so close to the water, especially with all the hurricanes and flooding lately in that part of the country.

    Sell out or not, there was no one like Dali. He and Renoir are my favorite artists and the rest aren't even close.

    I have some wonderful signed Dali prints.

    The ability to see through his extreme popularity.

    I'm not an expert of arts and, actually, all I know about Dali (or have heard about him) is that he's paintings usually have objects in motion or simply mid-air but what I really like is Halsman's Dali Atomicus. That's truly an amazing photo.

    If you don't like 'The Metamorphosis of Narcissus' you may as well not bother.

    It's been a while since I delved into Dali. I enjoyed his writing very much.

    *Yes.

    The Persistence of Memory is the painting I always think of. I find his technical skill in painting melty-clocks fascinating.

    I just returned from NYC. Unfortunately the one thing I had to cut from my itinerary was the MoMA where "The Persistence of Memory" was on display as well as other works by Dali.
