Thank you for the compliment. I do not expect a great deal of appreciation for my art but a local expert told me just yesterday she thinks it could do quite well at an exhibition later this year. I do nudes and/or head and shoulder pictures, to suit the wishes of the subject. Bye. James

That maybe the case with lots of art but some stocks are pricy too. you can buy some nice pieces of art for the price of one Lindt & Sprüngli voting share at around $90,000 each, LISN on the Zürich exchange. Berkshire Hathaway shares, BRK.A, would buy some ok pieces of art too at around $272,000 each.

I am an artist and if you come my way - I live in Zürich - I will do a drawing of you for slightly less! James

Thank you for the follow up. My opinion has been hardened since I wrote that given the denial of problems by many political leaders including recently the PM of Australia whose country is the world’s worst per capita polluter in the world.

I like to look for solutions and found some very positives moves towards hydrogen that I put into this article a few days ago. James seekingalpha.com/.../4318312-linde-praxair-new-energy-major
