Girl with the pearl

As a part of my movement toward a loose abstract realism I thought that I could spend some time and make some paintings influenced  by the great painting masters.  The girl with a pearl earring by Johannes Vermeer was my inspiration for this one.  I had read that there was some new evidence that  there are green curtains behind the girl in the original painting, the same article said that it was possible that it was actually Johannes daughter  Maria who painted over 20% of the paintings attributed to the great master.  So I started thinking about Maria really enjoying the little joke.  I painted my girl with a little laugh as she leads the viewer into the deep snowy moonlit woods.  A grey owl keeps watch and in Mythology owls are a sign of things in growth and change for the good. 

My girl is painted on linen and stretched on a frame built by me.  It measures 24 x 36, bigger than the original.  Deep prussian blue forest and I love the counterbalance and play between the blues and greens and yellows in the girls dress.  The turquoise in her head scarf ends.

This Website Supports Augmented Reality to Live Preview Art!

This means you can use the camera on your phone or tablet and superimpose any piece of my art onto any wall you'd like inside of your home or business.  This is a super way to see exactly how a piece looks with your own decor.  I love this feature because it takes all of the guesswork out of incorporating new art in your home or office.  

Look for the "Live Preview AR" button when viewing any piece of art on this website!  Isn't that exciting!?
