I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. Escher

Who Should Paint You: M.C. Escher
Open and raw, you would let your true self show for your portrait.
And even if your painting turned out a bit dark, it would be honest.

Hey - that's the result I got. You're not cribbing are you?
And funnily enough, I do love Escher's work!

"Larger than life, your personality overshadows everyone in the room
A painter would tend to portray you with a bit of added flair!"

Roy Lichtenstein? I never heard of him. Great, now I feel stupid...

I DO have flair, though! :)

tc - No cribbing. And I love Escher's work, too. But I get dizzy at the thought of being incorporated into that stair picture...

Apparently, Salvador Dali...

You're a complex, intense creature who displays many layers.
There's no way a traditional portrait could ever capture you!

m'k...

All American yet funky, you inspire an artist's imagination
And while not everyone will understand your portrait, you will!

I'm an Andy Warhol stuff... Blah!

mp - Hmmm. Your own work looks more like Richard Avedon. (sp?) But then, he was (is?) a photographer, too.

But you're in good company... Warhol painted Marilyn Monroe!

Jackson Pollock. Is that one of my choices. Is this a quiz? I would choose Jackson Pollock, anyway. :)

jkirlin lives! hoorah!

isn't pollock the one who painted by flinging the paint at the canvas?


p.s. - i'm eschewing capital letters today. i'm either in e.e. cummings mode or too lazy to hold down the shift key. not sure which yet.

Gee Dawn: Thanks for comparing me to Avedon! He was great (died in 2004).
