Scream paintings

Yesterday one of four versions of The Scream sold for a record $119,922,500 at Sotheby's. The previous auction record is held by Picasso's Nude, Green Leaves, and Bust, which sold for $106.5 million in 2010. In this version of The Scream, Munch's handpainted frame includes poems that describe him "shivering with anxiety" and feeling "the great scream in nature." If any readers would like to create your own version of The Scream in response to the auction (or anything else), please send a jpeg by June 1, 2012, and I'll post an exhibition.
