Coded Message from Famous Artist

"Coded Message from Famous Artist"
5x7 inches, acrylic on panel

The figure is done from a live model. The background is an encrypted quote from a famous artist, with a red herring or two thrown in to make it a little harder to decipher. The code itself should be easy a good cryptologist to decipher. Feel free to try!

I've always loved secret codes. I used to make them up when I was a kid. Many years later as an adult I found out that my Dad was a code breaker in World War II. I guess it must have been in the air.
