New Paintings!

I couldn't stay away from painting much longer. I got a new book for Christmas chock full of art to look at. I love painting my own versions of famous paintings. What if Vermeer's "Girl with the Pearl Earring" would have had a kitty to love. Maybe she wouldn't have started modeling for artists at such a young age and gotten herself in trouble. But then I guess she wouldn't have been given that exquisite pearl earring...

I was anxious to try the new watercolors I got with a gift card. This is my first attempt at it. It is a mini painting, 3"X3", mounted on cardboard and comes with a small wooden easel. I will be listing these on Ebay tonight. Come check them out. The links are always at the top of this page. Have a safe and happy New Year!

Hi Cris, Of course the girl with the pearl earring should have had a kitty in her arms! Your interpretation is perfect! Watercolor is beautiful!
Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!
