Tick - Well done. The desaturation offers a silhouette image - more of your creativity. The link is most helpful in appreciating this work. Kudos! Thad

Nice work, Tick. Before I had a chance to read it, I thought it looked like Abe Lincoln.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

I've been to Evansville several times, as my husband is from the area of Illinois adjacent to there, and your image really does this sculpture justice - it's a most unique sculpture.

I used to live in Evansville, a neat river town. I love that you were there. I have not seen this sculpture. You did a great job.
