Simon was blown away by the brilliance of Kymia's drawings.

It was great having KAWS as a guest judge for the finale. I was an admirer of his work early on and am thrilled to see how he goes from success to success. Artists themselves always bring a unique perspective to the judging of the works, and the guest judges form the ideal complement to the outstanding roster of permanent judges China Chow, Jerry Saltz, and Bill Powers.

The most gratifying thing for me personally in participating in Work of Art this season was working with the artists, host, judges, guest judges, executive producers, producers, technicians, cameramen, sound engineers, make-up artists, etc. It was fun, inspiring, and invigorating.

Will there be another show?  How do you go about applying to be a contestant on the show?  Is there an age limit?

How to buy prints? Bravo ends the show saying to go to this website to find out how to own a print, but I sure can't find it anywhere on the website. Could you help a girl out? I'd love a print of Kymia's boat.

Love you Simone! I am glad you are blunt wih the artists. It seems to help them - and challenge them to dig deeper.

I especially like reading your assessment of the artists' work. It's another perspective - and a trusted one at that...perhaps even the keenest of the bunch :)

I'm so glad Kymia won. Her work is lovely and thoughtful. I would love to see it in person.

I couldn't agree more, Kymia is an amazing artist. Please tell Bravo to get their act together and make it easier for people to buy prints and originals. There are people with money will to buy.
