                    I rather like the bottom one,  as it reminds me of something the
                    late Irish painter Francis Bacon might prefer, as its realism
                    is skewed to the point of being unrecognizable.  In keeping
                    with Bacon's aesthetic views and working methods,  his paintings
                    presented an expressive realism with equally expressive abstract
                    brushwork,  and the genre commonly referred to as portraiture
                    was transformed,  in his words,  into a series of "heads" in a room.
