iTOMB: Tiny "Gates"?

One Tiny Gate: Anon.V. 10.20.12
My apologies the last few weeks all. Things became hurricane based for a week with no power and the High Line closed and they have been slow to return. Our collection of small paintings continues to grow and is now nearing 1000. Who knew? As thankful as I am to all the painters out there, I am more thankful to you for just making me feel like a king on a daily basis. Often I have said, that never have I had a job where people thank me for what I'm doing all day. My days at iTOMB are truly gratifying because of all of your spirits.

To read more about what makes it akin to The Gates", a massive art installation by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in Central Park in 2005 click here:)
