If you could have any three original paintings...
 
... to hang up somewhere in your home, which ones would you choose? You can't turn around and sell them or profit from them in any way. They are just yours to admire.

Tom Thompson's The Jack Pine for the first.

A VanGogh Cypresses

The third I'd have to think about.

This is a tough question to answer, as there are just too many I admire and would love to own (most likely in my dreams) but I've managed to come up with three which are all subject to change. In no particular order:

-Self Portrait at the age of 63 by Rembrandt


-Cenotaph to the memory of Sir Joshua Reynolds by John Constable


-Virginia Woolf by Vanessa Bell

That is a tough question... But I do own two of my all time favorite paintings already by Direk Kingnok of a vw repair shop and two amazing work by my friend Mitchell Poor, so I am thrilled with my art collection.

My wife wins for creativity. Her answer... "the Sistine chapel"😂😂😂

I would pick:
1 - The mona lisa by Da Vinci.
2- Van Gogh's starry night (dunno if I got the name right).
3- the Last supper by Da Vinci.
