'Black and White' emerged from a theme prompt for our monthly Members' gallery shows at Shenandoah Valley Arts Center, SVAC. It's fun to sometimes work with an external prompt. Typically my 'prompts' may come from a single image that attracts me or an emotion or situation which goes in search of images; so an outside prompt sends me down it's own path.

Here, the core image of a pensive Bette Davis led the way to this collage. The prominent male figure is another 1940's era star, Leslie Howard. I colorized and altered both figures from the original black and white photos. Retro film and images are always a vivid part of my mind's collective.
