"Tower must realize that she doesn't cut it as a painter, because she insists that her painting is merely the product of a heroic performance. She breaks the law painting on site! She puts her life at risk! There are rabid dogs prowling the site -- not to mention the humans! So, she hires a bodyguard -- an ancient man who looks as if he wouldn't be much good if any trouble occurred -- and she does her heroic thing.
"Sorry, but I'm not buying her schtick. What she's doing is not performance art, not even bad performance art. It's the result of an ego out of control. She would be far better off teaching herself to paint in her studio than wasting her time hauling canvases and paints back and forth across the river."
