Closing the book on Cramer

I think it turned out pretty well. Lots of stuff going on. Basquiatesque, what with the four vertical and one diagonal slash thing in the upper left (total # of annotation days).

I might have soft-pedaled the yellow background a bit, but I think I like a bit of color in the back. Just lighter.

Do you recognize this numerical progression: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 etc.?

Some guy named Lenny Fibonacci came up with it. He also has a kind of a swirl, which looks like this:

There's a good bit of suggestion amongst the Commentariat that Cramer's nipples are Fibonacci Spirals. This is not the case, although the fact remains that the F-word appears a number of times on the face of the canvas. Go figure.

Here are a couple of quick Basquiats. One's a self portrait; the other is a reinterpretation of the ML.

Funny how you start out painting like Pollock, end up painting like Basquiat. Go figure.
