Five stars!
OK now I have to get back to work on my "Florida Arcimboldo" which has been languishing on the clip-board of my cluttered but beloved old PSP7 program.
Hey I've been trying to get this game going in my other virtual home-away-from-home, redbubble; I'd be really grateful if you'd also post this over there?

I don't know about you (you were so damn' good to start with) but doing this has been beneficial for me because it has motivated me to improve my skills with graphics software, which has become a sort of core skill even for traditional painters in the Digital Age.

Thank you, you flatter me. I went over to post but saw you already did it, so again thank you. :D I do wish I had more time to commit to this because it seriously is a fun game.

Yes I went ahead and posted your Junk Food Arcimboldo because I thought it was asking too much of you to join the group and deal with redbubble's often baffling software (I suppose the majority of these web sites do have software that can be baffling the first time one tries to use it) but if you're interested in the Remodernist Painters' Group by all means please do join us.

I'm glad that you like it. Could you tell that it was also based on Giuseppe Arcimboldo's Summer, as (I think) yours was? Probably not. He might have done more than one "Summer" painting, come to think of it. The one I trashed looks more like Autumn, actually. I mirrored it because of the shape of the State of Florida but I'm wondering why you did? Here's the original for mine:

Aha! Never mind. This is the one you used, also called Summer, no?

Yep that's the one, well almost, he did an earlier version of that painting that looks like this:

and that's the one I used.

Here I have taken two iconic images and combined them for Halloween.
The first is of course Whistler's Mother (done to death, I know, but there it is).
The second is a still from director Alfred Hitchkock's 1960 film, Psycho.
I call it Whistler's Dead Mother.

Deeply, deeply disturbing.
