They say that imitation ...

is the greatest form of flattery, so ...

    there is one notorious J-land artist who might know exactly what that feels like once he takes a look at the windmills in the mind of this wild eyed, slightly troubled guy wearing his bow tie and hankie in the midst of bright and cheerful yellow colored surroundings.

     Have you ever written a story, created a character in a play or painted a picture solely from your interpretation of someone else point of view? That's what I did today (I know, I need to get a life).

     I've been playing around with colors & collages for a few day's now and after exchanging E-mail about different perceptions of art with a friend that views the world so much differently than I do (sort of), I was inspired to create the gent you see above.

     All in fun,  this is my interpretation of colors and thoughts through the eyes of my friend! I have nothing more to say today, my one day weekend is almost over.

                                      Good night all

                                        *** Coy ***

      The Glinka colored flower in the pocket should be a hint to the identity of the mystery artist <-- click.

    Addendum, You guys guessed right away that the mystery artist was Albert. Michael also mentioned this looking like a self portrait of Dali, the self part won't work but can you see a slight resemblance?

Isn't this Albert's journal you are referring to? I think I got his journal from your list of journals. Art is in the eyes of the beholder they say. and is it life imitating art or art imitating life?Either way its very interesting to say the least. something to make you go Hmmmmmmmmm!!! Great job Coy.

I thought it was a self-portrait of DALI or Avery Schrieber.

Why is there a window in his throat??  I like Thomas Kinkade, personally.  ;-)

Looks like it could be Stained Glass even.  Coy, this is so Coy!  I see the artist in you blooming!

Hope you had a great weekend!  Thanks for keeping up with my journal when you get those little moments.  I have been bad at J-hopping, but hopefully I will get back to it.

Ciao... kate

I knew it was Albert before I got to the text of your entry. Very creative and a very good interpretation of one of our more notorious J-landers.
