The white and maroon Veyron was featured here somewhere. Possibly the same car, may have been gifted to MF Hussein by some sheikh? He must have sketched the sheikh's favourite horse

Afterall these sheikhs get done with women and cars as quickly as you would the morning's newspaper

In minutes he makes painting and make millions of rupees auctioning it. What a cool job... huh. Painting means any painting, whatever you can also draw by closing your eyes. Its simple.

BUT your English should be very strong strong enough to relate/describe that painting (read crap) with real world (By any reason). Something, like duty free magazines in international flight describe perfumes, cologne, makeup kit, purse etc. You should use some rare words to describe your paintings and you are done. How simple it is . I can see you are standing next in line booking Bugatti...
