And just a little more about the Martoma painting

I put the painting into ArtRage and revised it, removing any trace of a face in the middle ...

I also put a little frame around it, so you can envision it on your wall.  And it should be noted that messing around with ArtRage (my favorite computer painting program) just gives you a sense of the idea -- the execution is sometimes wanting.  But there you are.

I think the next time I unroll it, I'm going to pull out a tube of titanium white and make the changes permanent.

The reference, if case your head is not fully wrapped around this painting, is, of course ...

by Roy Lichtenstein.  Perhaps his most iconic image.  Certainly top five.
