Another artist who gets paid by the square yard insults her subject and her audience. Well, perhaps it was Michelle’s guidance that did the insulting. Let’s see what 5-min of PhotoShop can do to bring her back from zombieland. (What? Nah, Tretchikoff used colors.) _____ StoryOh yeah, almost forgot. Barry’s portrait was unveiled, too. My, [...]
