The Gatecrasher

Thank you everybody for your comments on Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? - I can't take any credit for the concept, I would never have thought of all those connections without prompting and guidance from my highly creative and innovative teacher. Here's the answer to the gatecrasher riddle for those who are still wondering... Salvador Dali, no less, who would normally I imagine, completely dominate a dinner party, so I had to keep him firmly and discreetly in his place. At the top is a rendition of his Lobster telephone, then a tiger from his 'Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bumble Bee round a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening' (how's that for a title!) in which the elephant in the spoon on the right also features, then the face from his painting Sleep. In the salt and pepper set, very hard to see - the Persistence of Memory, and finally his face of 'Mae West Which Can be Used as an Apartment' installation, another catchy little title.

I've never been fond of 'Persistence of Memory' -- but it makes a great Salt & Pepper! Beautifully imagined and rendered, as are all the images in this spectacular project.

I'm not a big fan of Salvadore dali, which provbavly explains why I completely missed hiome as the gatecracsher! but he fit very good into all the little corneres...a ral lurker..or stalker! Very well done Cathy.

As always, \imaginative and creative work. I couldn't believe it once I saw the Persistence of memory in the salt and pepper shakers. Very cool.

Even though you cannot take credit for the concept I love your version of it. Your colors and paintings chosen have been really great. Kudos my dear, many kudos.
