Thank you for all your entries. Here's a selection of some of the other better captions we received this week:'
"Leo, she looks sick to me. Does she have a bad 'code'?"
"I broke your code, Mr DaVinci! She is smiling because she is happy."
"That would make a great book cover!"
"I say there, Mr Brown -- quite a get-up you have on -- but haven't I seen your work somewhere before?"
"Don't you think it's too expensive to paint in oil these days?"
"Elementary! The background is northern Iraq painted in oil!"
"I've solved the mystery. If she's not smiling, it will never sell."
"I'm investigating the rumor that you paint by the numbers."
"It says, 'So dark the con of Bush'!"
"Elementary, my dear DaVinci. She smiles because she knows the Code!"
"Elementary, my dear Leonardo, she's not smiling, it's just gas!"
"I don't think calling it "John, the Beloved Disciple" is going to fool anyone."
"I found your code, Leo, and I believe, deciphered, it says, 'Tom Hanks will ensure it's a cash cow!'"
"Paint a # 3 on there and you might get Charlotteans to visit an art museum."
"I say, old chap! Her face resembles that bloke Tom Hanks!"
“We must make up a convoluted reason that has no basis in fact about why she’s smiling so someone will write a book about it!”
