Three Muses Challenge - Masculine

One of my favourite things to do is using cut and paste collage to alter portraits, re-costuming them and generally making a mockery out of famous paintings. To the artist my apologies.  This was originally a dark and sombre painting by El Greco.  His costume is a flight of fancy  (everything cut from background papers).  The pages, cards and checkered background are by Irene Alexeeva.  Other papers by Kay Balint.

Thanks to Ann for a black and white challenge!!  I made the "room" from background papers by Kay Balint and altered a Flickr free to use image to make her whiter than white and add a black and silver leotard.

This quote is so true it gives me the shivers.  There is no going back - just memories.
