so glad you posted this, I saw one of arcimboldo's paintings in a museum somewhere and yesterday I was racking my brain trying to remember both the artist and where it was I saw the painting - the louvre? the national museum of art in washington, here in cleveland.....well, still don't know but now at least I have the name of the artist....they are so wild!

now this is serious fun with vegetables!

I discovered Arcimboldo's work when I was a teenager, and I've been fascinated with his odd portraits ever since. His work was a major influence on Salvador Dali, you know.

Great addition to the theme!

This kind of talent is scary! what kind of dreams do they have...or do they even sleep? Luckily I am not blessed so most nights sleep well.
