Collage post mortem 11 -- pointing the finger

One of the loudest, most insistent images you can add to your art work is a pointing finger.  Who can resist looking where the finger points?

My finger-pointing image repertoire got a big boost in the fall when the movie "Salinger" came out, its ads featuring a hand-drawn illustration of the famous author with a finger to his lips.  The ad ran frequently, in different sizes, sometimes in color, sometimes in black-and-white.  Salinger's finger showed up several times in the collages.
