My daughter Silvia sent me these two Paulie collages for my amusement, and I thought they might be appreciated here. Smile





A man of a thousand faces, huh?

They sure are appreciated here Very Happy Thanks Estelle for posting them and thank your daughter for making this collage. Is she a fan also?
I like this picture in the black and white collage, in the right corner at the top, where is having a bit of a beard. Do you know from what movie that is?

This colour one is absolutely gorgeous! Both of them would make
breathtaking wall posters with a simple silver frame, don't you think?

I noticed my all time favourite of Carolyn's-"Romanza". Estelle, did
your daughter need to get Carolyn's permission to use her paintings/
drawings? Just curious.

Sylvia, the picture you refer to, is from Gypo.

Thanks Estelle! To you and your daughter!

Catherine xx (God! He's gorgeous! Mm! Mm!)

These are beautiful, Estelle! I'm especially drawn to b&w pics because I think they show detail and shading so much more dramatically - the color doesn't get in the way.

Hi Sylvia Smile

My daughter Silvia said she couldn't sleep one night and thought she'd make me a collage. She got the pictures from the Library and then used Picasa (a cute photo-edit program from google) to arrange them. She's not actually a fan though, and her husband thinks she facilitates my obsession. LOL!

I'd been thinking of juxtaposing images of young and old Paul after I read a comment at Outpost Gallifrey that he seemed to be aging well. And then Silvia me the collages which do just that. Smile

As Catherine said, the picture of Paul with a bit of a beard is from Gypo. Maddy rendered some of my caps in black and white, and these latter look really good.

The images would have to redone for printing. As it is, they're small and would lose resolution if enlarged.

No, Silvia didn't get anyone's permission, Catherine. She retrieved the photos from the Library for her little project. She said she thought about posting the results in the comment section of my myspace profile and then decided it would be better to send them to me in an e-mail instead.

I love Romanza, too, and have Carolyn's originial painting which she did at my request. Smile Yes, I thought both collages were gorgeous.

Yes, the black and white pics are great. I especially love the one in which Paul is wearing a big coat. The latter is included in an article from Frank magazine, and here it is again:



And also:



I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw the goodies from Silvia. Smile

Yeah, I understand what you mean about losing resolution, Estelle.
They would still make lovely framed pictures...for a nightstand, maybe?

I was just wondering about the permission thing, as I would love to
have her permission to use "Romanza" as an avatar. I would only do
it if I knew she didn't mind, of course. I just think that picture is so
beautiful! I read one of your posts a wee while ago, where you'd said
you'd commissioned the painting. Lucky lady! As it is, I have my print
beside my bed. It's the last thing I see at night and the first thing I see
in the morning. It's to the right of "Nocturne Interlude", which is to the
right of "Thais". Those three do make a beautiful musical triptych.

For anyone unfamiliar with the paintings, they are all of the Eighth
Doctor. "Thais" is with a violin, "Nocturne Interlude" is with a piano,
and "Romanza" is, of course, with the guitar. They are absolutely
gorgeous!

Catherine xx

I'd previously gotten permission from Carolyn to post her pictures at various sites, and she just requested that they be posted as small versions. I'm sure she wouldn't mind your using Romanza as an avatar. The picture I'm using as my online icon is a piece called Symphony of the Night which my son Patrick did.

I'll planning to put all three up in my new office which has plain white walls, jus as soon as I get three additonal works from Patrick. And Bearded Who will be there, too, Smile

Sounds good Estelle! I've got the "Bearded Doc" one as well. I
think it's interesting that, even though there's no instrument in it,
it still seems to go with the other three. I think it's because of the
romantic feel of all four paintings.

I might still ask Carolyn first, but as you say, she probably wouldn't
mind. It would make such a lovely avatar.

Good point Michelle! I can't imagine those pictures not being appreciated!
BTW-I've had some trouble with mcgannbrothers.org today. I can
get to the home page, but nowhere else. I get "this page cannot be
displayed" for the rest. Any ideas on what's up?

Catherine xx

I thought she had used powerpoint. A friend of mine makes similar collages of her holiday photos with it. I think the one your daughter has used looks better.
