New collage for Friday -- a little late!

I finished a few pieces yesterday, but didn't get a chance to write about them. I'm working on a series of altered portraits of screen legends. This is, I suppose, a spin off from my portraits of diva Maria Callas -- these ladies were all divas in their own fields, certainly. I find that 1930s-1950s glamour photography has created such strong images, that these women's faces have become icons of beauty, attitude and strength. They are so satisfying to work with!

Here's another altered photo of Gloria Swanson, one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen.
