Elvis Through the Ages

It has come to my attention that some Russian hackers are using these images as a lure to link to their domain services site...

This is a personal exercise incorporating the depiction
of a contemporary cultural icon and distinct eras in the
history of painting. All paintings were done in oils at a
size of  8"x10".
