Layering allows for depth.  Works that are flat are not as interesting even when the works are abstract.  This piece is layered in such a way so that the focal points, the women, seem to be in some sort of social setting or perhaps a setting where they are exploring something.  I am reading a book about WWII and the women who went to France from England to relay messages back to England about war efforts.  Perhaps these women are members of the underground.

Found these Bobbies and decided that they were a perfect mindset for my trip to the UK in April.

Another title for this piece could be Hiding the Drink.  Growing up I often found bottles of bourbon hidden in different places around the house.  I always thought it odd but now I understand what alcoholics may do to hide the fact that they are drinking.

This could easily have entitled Man's Best Friend.  The reason for the words on the gentleman's face is because I printed the image onto a page in a children's book.  The orange stripe on the face is from the book page as well.  I guess you could say this is a planned accident.  The planning part was to print on a text page.  The accident part is how it turned out.

Is this guy a detective?  Is he examining a list of suspects?  Or since there is a Japanese warship, is he looking for spies?  What is your take?
