Three musicians

And that is the end of Picasso. I should've taken a pic of the final touch-up. Oops.

That's a very accomplished painting!
Would Monet's waterlilies be too wishy-washy for your taste, to do on a window?

Monet is a very easy artist to emulate. Any reason you want me to do it on a window instead of canvas? This one was done on canvas (btw). :)

And thank you! This one took some serious time, due to the intricacy of the "boxed" locations.

Oh, I just thought the luminous delicate colours would lend themselves well to being on a window - it'd really bring the picture to life!

Picasso is a difficult artist for me - his pictures demand a LOT of careful inspection before I can tease out the meaning and the figures. It's worthwhile, but being a pleb, I do tend to go for the less rigorous and more conventionally 'pretty' images like Monet's waterlily series.

Although Picasso is not only difficult but...strange for me, I like the mental complexity it requires to complete his work and have it even vaguely resemble it. You step into his head for awhile (a very strange place) and are forced into critical thinking. Good excercise for ya! :>

I love it! :D

Thank you! That one took quite a bit of work! :D

that's cool. like the dog. looks nothing like cat dog, though

I can't believe you noticed him!! It's like Picasso's "afterthought" and I'd bet it /was/ while he was painting this. It was hard to integrate, since it was all bizarre and two-dimensional-like (as Picasso was wont to do). It looks MUCH better in person (the colors pop out nicely). :>

i play a lot of "hidden object games" whenever i'm truly killing time. got sharp eyes for an elderly gentleman. plus i loves me some hossenpepper (carrots)

Hahaha. :) That dog was a biznatch to get on there. But it does look just as messed up as the original dog. lol :)

Right now, the spawnlette is sitting up, all proper in front of the easel on a bar stool, creating cover art for my journals/books. I think it's kinda neat that I still stare at her now with the same wonder I did when she was a baby. Every nuance, crook of the head, movement of the hand fascinates me. Hm.

well, it's kinda like watching yourself create while watching someone else, i imagine. or maybe i'm totally off, never having had kids. well, not physically having having them, you know

I think I still view her as miraculous. The whole birth process, watching a child who so closely resembles you in action and look, and the wonder of how she went from a helpless little being to this strong, independent life force. She's amazing to watch, and always has been, even when just reading a book.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
