PPF and the Wright Brain e-Course...
What an assignment...to take a piece done by a master and recreate it as if the master had been influenced by another artist's style....hummmmmm....way outside my comfort zone! Lisa had chosen as an example Vermeer's "girl with a pearl earring". I won't give her lesson away but seriously - in the past I would have picked a floral by Van Gogh and done something BUT with new found vision and courage...I did Vermeer! I decided to create this piece with the influence of an artist friend who's work I find fasinating, Mark Doepker. He currently lives in Charlotte, N.C. and his work is in galleries around town. So this is my Vermeer influenced by Doepker:
my Doepker-ized Vermeer
Here are a couple pieces of Mark's:

auspicious EXHIBITS Folk Devils, Moral Panics & Pinups (group show)-Charlotte ...
I know for a fact that I would not have tried this if not for the last few months of taking Lisa's class and Natasha May's Cotton Candy Girl class. I am amazed at how Lisa's class has given me new vision and has changed my thought process! Natasha's class has given me courage to do faces!!!! Thank you ladies' !!!!
Thanks to Kristin and Eva for hosting paint party Friday's and I can't wait to check out all the artists this week!
