Tiny Q vs. Uncle Sam by TinyQ Tiny Q vs. Uncle Sam by TinyQ
Well, our next project was to take any painting we wanted and to reproduce it exactly but put our face into it. I had initially thought to use “Man with Woman’s Head” by Odd Nerdrum but when I went to the library I randomly took out a Rockwell book as well. I was flipping through it at lunch and saw this one (which you can find here: [link] it’s not the best pics I could find to show you as no one seems to have a coloured version. It’s by sheer luck that I took the only book that had one), and Lallie and Pam ordered me to do it. I totally agreed, for not only is it cute, it’s ironic too. I mean, I am probably the least Pro-Bush administration person you can meet right now. It also appealed because I was taking a WWII history class at the time, so yah.

Well, this took a lot more effort than I thought it would, but I enjoyed doing it quite thoroughly. One of the girls in the class said I would hate myself because of all the detail, but it never crossed my mind. It doesn’t look quite the same as the original, but I didn’t really start to realize it until I was halfway done and couldn’t change anything anymore. Oh well. Don’t know what I am going to do with the bloody thing now. Gah. What do you think??

Oil Paint
48x39 Stretched Canvas

Note: I realized after I took it that my drop cloth is blocking the signature, so I’ll take a better pic of it later.

THis is wonderful! Its so fun with the blend of the original and your style! I never knew you could paint folds too! now I am jealous beyond words. so not fair. Alas, I suppose if I get pretty eyes you get amazing folds. I love so much of this... the pants, the jacket, the shoes, and that wonderful background. The colors are wonderfully funky too. Who would have thought that red, blue, and mint green go together? Anyways, beautiful work! I can't wait to see more of your paintings!

:love: Dani

You did a absolutely fantastic job with this! And I also don't like Bush either.
