I decided to switch to a neutral avatar.

Anemones by Ștefan Luchian (1910)

My girlfriend approves. (Her favorite flowers.)

And I approve, as any flower wins over Rachmaninov's mug. (Though I do adore his music.)

Oh, I think his mug is much cuter with that cap than without.  :D

Since I’ve turned my attention to Shostakovich for quite some time, I figured it was time for Mieczysław Weinberg to be in the spotlight for awhile. He certainly deserves it! Love this composer’s music.

Decided to change my avatar to Khachaturian since I’ve been so enamored with his music lately. This portrait is painted by the well-known Armenian artist, and friend of Khachaturian, Martiros Saryan.

Decided to change my avatar to Holst since I don’t believe he’s ever been one of my featured photos. I love his music and the more you start to dig into his oeuvre, the better it gets. Anyone who doesn’t get past The Planets is doing this composer a disservice, IMHO.

Oh, he looks just like Weinberg :-\.

Decided to change my avatar back to Monsieur Claude. Love this man’s music dearly.

I'm changing to an actual composer - Sir Harrison Birtwistle. Not sure though if most of you would count anyone modern enough to have a colour portrait as proper classical :P.

Mine is both.  :)

Since it's theoretically the change of seasons I decided to change my avatar to something a bit wintry.

Gilbert Stuart: The Skater
It's actually a commissioned portrait of a Scotsman in London named William Grant.
