Honest question, Leonard:

If--like you say on the show--you want a Sol LeWiit in your bathroom, why not just do one?

A Sol LeWitt is sold as a series of instructions to be executed by someone else. Why not just look at the instructions for a piece and execute it?

Please stop asking such long questions and try to let their personalities come out--they seem like such fascinating people. Thanks.

Please ask about art dealers-- Some general advice from collectors.

-- Some "Do's and Don'ts" for art dealers who want to sell to good collectors.

Any examples of good or bad that dealers did?

I'm not looking for names, just general wisdom.

Thanks.
