Nice.

Goya also portrayed the criminal element in some of his work.

If you like the feel of these photos, check out Greg Crewdson -goes to movie production lengths to set up still photo shots. Creepy ambience.

I love the creepy, off center, and the perverse, in art. Remember those Venus Paradise Coloring Sets?? I never followed the rules . . . always chose my own colors, instead of the ones the manufacturer, suggested. I turned out some truly, eerie pictures. Always thought El Greco's paintings, were somewhat weird.

My ultimate is still the French photographer Guy Bourdin:
I also like the Teutonic S&M fortitude of Helmut Newton. Interestingly enough, another one of my favorite photographers, Diane Arbus was a fashion photographer before turning independent.

The one I'm talking about, used colored pencils. Not oils . . . but, I remember paint by number, as well.
