The Son of Man by René Magritte
lol, but needs hat, white shirt, red tie, and no PS.
And a green apple
For the Friday Art Challenge:
And more in its inspirational context:
As I mentioned upthread, I do have a fondness for Baroque art and I have a print of the cardsharps hanging on the wall above the table in this snap, just offscreen to the right of where I'm sitting. It's a bit cheesy to have that kind of print, but cheesiness has never bothered me, and I love the painting. I tried to draw inspiration from the various colours and the bold contrasts rather than actually copying a single outfit, though couldn't resist echoing the pose of the younger conman. The table appearing more or less contiguous in the collage was a remarkably fortuitous coincidence!!
I might go with this famous painting by Mexican Diego Rivera.

Do I get extra votes if I wear chelasea boots as Diego does?
You'll get my vote if you wear those socks and shorts as well
This would make a great pocket square.
Betel, if you post a fit with Day of the Dead make up, I will rig the poll so that you win.
Edit: I said that as a joke, but I think I might be serious
I may, just may, be entering in this wild party.
so, after a lot pressure from claghorn, i agreed to post my art inspired fit. or, more accurately, fits.
props to @bourbonbasted for inspiring this one....
and to @Roycru for this one...
That's actually really good, although it does make you look like you are out on day-release...
Thanks! I thought so myself.
Who says Im not?
Your ankle monitor tan is clearly a month in the works.
Not sure what that means exactly, but I think that I just showed a lot of range in those two fits. Lets focus on that, and my execution, not my mental stability, or lack thereof. Kthnx!
