Remember I while back I asked all of you to explain this picture to me and the best explanation would win a prize. Well we have two winners....I could not decide whose explanation was best. So kudos to my friends Bob Fanter and Sally Masters. And now for your prize. Each of you go to my Etsy site www.etsy.com/shop/lindasolovic and pick out two prints you would like, email me and I will send them to you no charge! Now I know in Bob’s case, Gini will be picking out the prize but that is okay with me. The winning explanations are below:
Bob Fanter/Gini Bicket
We think the picture is a nightmare, not unlike those dreams where all kinds of weird things happen but everyone else thinks it is perfectly normal. That looks like Marilyn Monroe in the pink. The man's hairline suggests Nixon or maybe!-- Tom Hanks playing Carl Hanratty in Catch Me If You Can!-- and that's why there are fake checks and incriminating documents laying on the table in the foreground!--and he's wading in water with his suit on, perhaps he is about to be baptized. I don't think that is Scarlett O'Hara, it's more like Sara, plain and tall, emphasis on the plain. That thing at the top is either a weeping willow or a leaping whale. The girl with the rose is Gypsy Rose Lee, and the other girl is Scout from to Kill a Mockingbird and that bowling pin lamp thing is her costume for the school play and she doesn't want to wear it-- that's why she is hiding. That makes about as much sense as a nightmare.
Okay, there was a storm or a flood or something at the top. The parents are on the right. One of the daughters (pink one) died and her memory drips into all of their lives. Her sister can't let go (rose reaching up to dead pink sister); another sister is lesbian but can't come out from under the table. The baby of the family is a crackhead (cracked lamp baby).
So thanks to you two (three) and send for your prize.
