I know, this is late, late, late. But I have an excuse. Right before I joined OS, Joan put out an open call asking for a new hat for her OS Avatar. When I went to the OS Birthday Bash, there was mention of the hat contest. So when I met Joan, I committed to proffering my own. But it took me a while to find decent examples of the paintings and photos I was seeking, and then longer to complete the Photoshopping.
Joan, I hope that I am not too late to participate. And if I am, I hope that you will still enjoy them! (P.S., sorry again for spilling your glass of wine at the OS Anniversary Party - typed with sheepish grin on face.)
JOAN AS ABIGAIL ADAMS
For Patriotic Holidays
(Comment 1: It just seemed fitting to me.
Comment 2: I couldn't stop at just a hat...)
Version 1: Joan as Abigail in EveryWoman Revolutionary Farm Garb
Version 2: Joan as Laura Linney as Abigail Adams
(I apologize to HBO ahead of time as I suspect there are copyright issues, but what woman wouldn't enjoy seeing her head atop Laura Linney's amazing neck - and oh, I am counting the wig as a "headpiece".)
Version 3: My Favorite - Joan in Classic Abigail Garb
(Note: clearly, there are no copyright issues with this one.)
JOAN WALSH AS ROSIE THE RIVETER
For Labor Day and May Day, perhaps?
A Historical and Yet Down-Home, Everyday Sort of Look
AND FINALLY! A SUMMER SUN BONNET
(Joan, you asked for an Easter Bonnet, but it's clearly time
for something a little more summery!)
