592 figurative artists with great work and great sites are already up on the site.
68 have accepted but I still need more info.
15 are still considering it.
Of these 697, 333 are female, 345 are male like above Franco Castelluccio and about 8, I’m not quite sure.
About 6 couples have both husband and wife as listed artists.
11 declined my invitation.
Of the 80 who submitted to the site, 23 were rejected for not enough figurative work, poor site or just not a strong enough personal vision.
