Say "Cheese!" -

"Photo Op With the Guest Speaker"
digital collage by Mick Mather
I've been playing quite a bit this last week. Tossing images around quickly, cutting and pasting with minimal softening, blending or repainting before running it through the super secret array. Todays post has been nagging at me a bit, demanding to be finished ... so, here it is.

This one is so very well done and actualy disturbing - reminds me of Pablo and Gaugin and history of modern "figurative" painting.

Somehow I think of a portrait of Musolini.

I was thinking the same thing but a few decades forward. The figure on the right suggested Beckmann to me and the resemblance to Il Duce surely fits the time and face of good ol' Max!

I'm thinking that it must be all of us doing the drinking, Hélène ... so, let us not forget our end of the bargain! :D
