What was she thinking?

A little bit of digital fun for Mixed Media Monday. It is gratifying to see that icons of style didn't always get it right. Perhaps Uncle Basil was forced to wear Coco's little black dress in a cross-dressing up jape! I'm sure it was all jolly good fun anyway!

I found the picture in Vogue, transferred the image to an acrylic background then played in Photoshop. I doubt she would approve.

  1. Probably not the way Coco would have liked to be portrayed, LOL! What a fun piece, Lisa! Diane

  2. I've been using the word "jape" in crossword puzzles for years, but this is the first time I've ever seen anyone use it in writing. SO, I really appreciate your art AND your comments! Good work.
