White Collar Fic: Magritte  
Written for whitecollar100 Challenge #016 – Paint

Title: Magritte
Pairing/Characters: Mozzie, Neal
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Prisoners Dilemma
Summary: Neal gets Mozzie in a way that few people ever do
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

One of Mozzie's many residences is simply called Magritte.

Neal discovered that his friend had an affinity for the Belgian surrealist and gifted him with some expert reproductions as a thank you for assistance on a big con.

Only he replaced Magritte's standard man in a bowler hat in each painting with a faceless version of Mozzie.

People unfamiliar with art probably wouldn't notice the fact that the bowler hat man was a bit shorter, his head a bit more egg-shaped, but Mozzie understands.

They grace the walls of Magritte, where only one person will ever see them.

Neal understands.

For those of you unfamiliar with Magritte, he's the "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" painter.

The bowler hat wearing man is one of his motifs.

The Son of Man
The Man in the Bowler Hat

Now can't you just picture Mozzie in a bowler hat and suit? LOL

This is great. And since I spent the last five days going around the NY MOMO, Whittny, Guggenheim and Met I am so in an artistic frame of mind. I can so see Mozzie tucked neatly into those paintings.

I love this word picture - and for now and ever more, The Man in the Bowler Hat will be Mozzie.

Thank you for a wonderfully unique take on this prompt.
