"As I See It: Pearl Earring"

"Pearl Earring" is an original, mixed media on board. 30" x 40". This work is part of a series I'm calling "As I See It: A Re-envisioning of Masterworks." This piece is a tribute to Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring. I really wanted to reproduce that scarf, and I used my wife as my muse.  If you look closely, you'll see the shadow of a man with his hands up in the huge pearl earring.

The seriers will end up being a celebration of my 60 years of growth as a professional artist and will include  twelve (12) large scale works of art that includes tributes to Michelangelo’s ‘Pieta’, Warhol’s ‘Marilyn’, Vermeer’s ‘Pearl Earring’, Munch’s “The Scream”, and Picasso’s ‘Woman in the Mirror’, among others.  Each of the pieces is visually compelling because I do use people of color, but each also contains a social message that is sometimes obvious, sometimes not.  

Each original in the series is $40,000 USD.
