Artist's Description


By Vermeer, the Grant Wood’s American Gothic and Magritte

I wanted to re-create an old master with a modern twist.

It was fun to do, however, I had more problems with taking things out again than with finding things to put in… LOL There was a lot of texture work and actual painting involved with this one.

I hope the image speaks for itself, however, in case it doesn’t – the blue butterflies are symbolic for all the dreams we have when we are young and the keys for all the choices and options that are open to us. I leave it up to you to decide the girl is thinking. :-)


This image is currently featured in The Group and made me their artist of the week – see here Yay! :-)
