For The Three Muses - Black and White

For the Three Muses Challenge this week the topic is "Black and White". I decided to once again go with my favorite silver screen actor, Tyrone Power. I combined an image of him that I purchased from eBay a while back with a picture I took of my mother's piano. I also incorporated a photo I took of old French lace, and a rose photo and handwriting (poem) I got from a Google image search. I did lots of layering and colorizing in Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop - finally I got to the point where the collage seemed to say "No more! I'm done now" =) ... so here it is. xxoo

I am a Tyrone Power fan too. He had the perfect, sculpted face and he did moody and intense so well. I love the way you have featured him in the midst of pieces of your own photos. The black and white effect is stunning. Wonderful artwork.
