About me


Below is my colored pencil rendition of one of my favorite movie posters from the movie "Girl with a Pearl Earring". The movie was based on a novel by Tracy Chevalier, which was inspired by the life and work of Dutch Master Painter, Johannes Vermeer - more specifically surrounding his masterwork, "Girl With a Pearl Earring".
 
My "painting" is 5x7, done in Prismacolor, on Stonehenge

Vermeer is played by Colin Firth

Scarlett Johansson plays the "Girl".
In the movie poster, it looks like they're having a quiet romantic moment, BUT as you can see in the picture on the left, it was  just after Vermeer pierced her ear!
 

The "Girl" is played by Scarlett Johansson.
