Dear Bob, I absolutely love it. LOL. I couldn't stop laughing-my first thought was how could I do La Shai like that. lol You are a master and your sense of humor is uncanny. I want to be just like you when I grow up.

Bob Orsillo replied:

Thanks Marie, You could have La Shais ghost looking :))

LOL Thanks Bret!

Well Bob...this is a hint of "black humour"....truly. The feet are great...the texture is great but what is really greater is the label. Is giving the "corpse" a kind of "royalty treatment"...even the ticket itself might me humiliating...but does a corpse feel humiliated, anyway? it seems rather a "gift card" left there for the physician in turn of doing on "you"....the cleanest of the autopsies. Of course...a dream, but never a bad one. Specially because you can tell it to others afterwords, with a gleaming look in your eyes.I like it very, very much. Rosa

I invite you to the Contest "Best-of CAT IMAGES" issued by me on my group site. Challenge? Or not a platform for your top works? Who knows...... Maybe 'As If I Were Dead" would be alive.... DEVIL would win surely, she is so perfect. And you tooooo!

Bob Orsillo replied:

I think you beautiful cat photography would win an contest.

P.s. Is it possible to change the name on the picture? And so it could be my self portrait as well. You are great! I don't emphasize again. It is so. That's a fact.

Budapest - Hungary

Dear Bob, I came to this work of you bcs I wished to see: who are you? (As you change yr avatar very often....) Bummmm, I found this Self Portrait. Thinking it over (yr changes of avatar and this Self portait) it came to my mind the meaning maybe (?) that you are a real artist. Not the face or something like this is important for you but the expression, the feeling, the emotion and something like these deep human things which are missing from people-of-today. Maybe I am wrong, but I think, I will not see any more at yr avatar, as it has no meaning. Your works and deep expressions are you. Am I right? Or it is a crazy thinking of me abt your works and abt you as an artist, a big artist - in the deepest meaning of this word. This picture could be a horror but it isn't - I think. You are great! If somebody makes such a self portrait, yes, he has from one side a big humor - but not only towards himself but towards the whole word. On the other side, once more: you are a big artist. I began to understand why.

Bob Orsillo replied:

Thank you very much my friend. You are very insightful, I am honored by your words :)

Stevenson, MD - United States

Rory, I got it. I can see the following printed on the inside of the card. "Sorry you lost. Remember there is honor in de-feet! " Bob, I just discovered your work. Ummmm....not sure what to say other that you are one creative man. F/V

Bob Orsillo replied:

lol Thank you Arlene!

Yelm, WA - United States

Well it's certainly an image that provokes thought...and that is always a worthy accomplishment! I love the contrast. I do wonder what one would have printed on the inside of the greeting cards?....hopefully not "wish you were here" or "get well soon!" (guffaw!)

Bob Orsillo replied:

LOL No comment ;)

Bob Orsillo replied:

Marlene Thank you! ;))

Green Lane, PA - United States

Macabre indeed but interesting. There is a devoted collector following for all things funereal. We once went to an antique auction what had a wicker casket and a skeleton. Don't ask - I don't know how that was legal; it did sell for big bucks. So, just maybe, your toes will be famous and make you a wealthy man (in the material sense - I think you're rich in the things that count). I would have thought the first morgue was much earlier! V/F

Bob Orsillo replied:

Carol that must have been some auction! A gothic delight I imagine. :) Thank you!

Ankara - Turkey

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu, Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion or cultural system. I am not from the East or the West, not out of the ocean or up from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all. I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or the next, did not descend from Adam or Eve or any origin story. My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless. Neither body or soul. I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being. Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

Bob Orsillo replied:

Thank you my friend for this beautiful quote!
