Still Life On Baker’s Rack

I haven’t been able to do much painting recently for personal reasons, so I have been going through my inventory of older works. Here is a painting I completed in 2002, featuring a collection of unique items placed on an antique baker’s rack, framed by foliage. This painting is kind of unique in my catalog, and reflects an influnce in 19th century genre painting.

Girl With A Pearl Earring (Iridescence)

Vermeer’s Girl With A Pearl Earring is one of the most popular images in the history of art, and as such, certainly qualifies to be reinterpreted in a Pop Art fashion. This is the fifth version of this image I have painted and has touches of iridescent silver, gold and copper paint, which give areas of the painting a shimmering, reflective quality. (For information on series painting, read my earlier blog post.

Variations On Botticelli’s Venus – No. 12 (Faux Van Gogh)

Here is the twelfth painting in the series of variations I am doing on the face of Venus from Boticelli’s Birth Of Venus. The influence of the recent Van Gogh Variations is evident here… I tried to incorporate Van Gogh’s pointillist technique in a subtle way. (For information on this series, read my earlier blog post.

Girl With A Pearl Earring (I ♥ Vermeer)

I have previously painted three variations on Vermeer’s most famous work, “Girl With A Pearl Earring… after the second was sold I was contacted by a collector in New Hampshire and was asked if I would ever paint another version. At the time, I hadn’t really any plans to do so, but assured her that if I did, I would contact her… In June, I did indeed paint another variation, so I sent an e-mail to her. But, before she had a chance to purchase, another collector swept in and purchased the painting immediately from my on-line store. So, I decided to do another variation, but waited until I had an idea for it that would be worth pursuing. The “I ♥ Van Gogh” series gave me just the inspiration for a new variation, which I completed last week. This time, I contacted the collector in New Hampshire and gave her the first opportunity to purchase without offering it to anyone else. The sale promptly completed, and this painting is now on its way to New Hampshire. (Incidentally, while working on this painting, I conceived of an idea for another variation on this work which I shall be working on soon…)

I ♥ Van Gogh (The Starry Violet Night)

Here is the next painting in the “I ♥ Van Gogh” series, another interpretation of “The Starry Night.” I have painted several variations of this work over the years, and have always maintained a faithfulness to the original color scheme of blues and indigos. It struck me that that a violet sky could be very striking, and provide on new twist on an old classic.
