Disappeared by hogret Disappeared by hogret
Digital collage.

For a challenge over at #AlteredMixedCollages to use Bouguereau's Le Travail Interrompu [link] in a collage.



I actually am not wild about the woman in the painting (I think she has a somewhat banal toothy leer), so my response to the challenge was to remove her from the picture entirely. (Although I too might be tempted to disappear if I had an annoying child trying to poke things in my ear!)

Challenge Gallery is here: [link]

I'm more interested in what Dalí or Hieronymus Bosch would have done with modern techniques. :P

Well, first step would be to build a time machine. That's your part

... And what on earth is that cherub trying to stick in her ear, in the original? And what is she holding?

I have no idea what he's sticking in her ear.  An arrow?  A chopstick?  eeew

She seems to be holding a ball of blue twine or thread - there is a basket of them next to her, and what looks like a weaving frame with blue threads in front of her.

Perhaps it's a knitting needle, in that case? Tsk, hasn't he heard of the "nothing bigger than your elbow" rule? Cherubs these days!
