/bark bark bark
for the final tribute to my mayden, on our last day of the 30 won in a poetry duel, i offer a crib on possibly one of the most recognizable photographs of a favorite muse of all time:
...."To the normal photographic print Ray has added two violin 'f' holes, pointing out the resemblance between the shape of her back and the body of a violin. The dress and pose for this picture are clearly modelled on those of the main figure in the well-known painting by Ingres, his Turkish Bath...."
Cool. I've run into a blog that uses that same image for her icon, I hadn't known what it was...

This is beautiful! Thank you :)
You have made this one of the most lovely experiences I've ever had...and I think I need to thank Percy for starting it all!
*Thank you Percy! And Cosmo too*
K9- you really are special.
All I ever hoped for was a drawing like the one you did for Lux! :)
You know- a girl, on a boat, with a dog :)
Heavens- you have wayyy out done yourself. Thank you, thank you, thank you :)

Solarized Mayden. Cool. Classic. Almost as good as the real thing (i.e. a Cora with f-holes).
this one's pretty good - but really, it's hard to decide which is the "best" or rather - which is my favorite.
good news at my roost - come on by - words and PHOTOS are up- first full installment anyways.
A Lovely Way to End, Dear Rottiepup!
once again, wow!
Cora's head looks quite at home on that body. You have mad photoshop skills..
They're all fabulous! And this one is truly classy. Looks like Mayden is all you could ever ask for in a muse!

Coming soon to DVD. Jeez dawg, you put all the rest of us guys to shame with your attention to detail and selflessness. I am on my way to Home Depot to get you the biggest IAMS bag I can fit on the trunk of the A3.

Let's put it in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. After all, it belongs there.
