Dora blows the whistle on Citigroup

Surely we are all familiar with the Picasso painting titled Dora and the Minotaur? The Dora in question is, of course, Dora Maar, one of Picasso's many lovers slash muses. This is it:

And this is it again, this time cropped for my high-minded purposes:

And this, dear reader, is a progression from what one might call zero to what one might call half-baked. Hah.

If you read closely, you can see that the copy scrawled across the top reads "Meredith Whitney grapples with the next big prediction."

Which will, in due course, read Prognostication, not Prediction.

I'm experimenting with the idea of pouring one color onto the canvas, then shmooing it around a certain area, then pouring a smaller amount of a second color into the same area and then shmooing that around. If you look at her body in image two you can easily imagine that white was the first color and red was the second. I rather prefer the lightness of images two and three, but the head of the minotaur was a disaster. The caravan moves on.

Picasso knew this.
