“I’m extremely interested in having a piece done (for Xmas) I know you’re booking well into Holidays now but can you tell me what you require to get started? I’m just trying to be pro-active this year!
I have attached the photos for you to take a look at - I have sent along two different views; either one is fine so I will let you judge which will be the easiest for you to work with. If we decide to a front view (where you can't really see the two small barns) I would like to have them included. I have also taken a piece of barn board off of the large barn and if possible, I'd like to include that.”
#TransformationTuesday the first three photos are from my first big show from five years ago, and the last three are from my third tour of the year! Today is a bitter sweet day after spending two months on the road with the @livediff crew. I have grown so much from this experience and cannot wait to pour my heart into my music even more come 2019!
Brooke Shaden recently did an underwater photograph without actually being underwater. I know...CRA!!! But, I wanted t give it a try and see if I could actually do it. When I first started I thought that it would be a complete waste of time but after playing around with poses and concepts, I think I created something that was both a challenge and a opportunity to learn more about my craft. I titled it time sink which according to the urban dictionary refers to something that takes a lot of your time and effort in order to be completed rather than timesink which refers to something that takes up a lot of your time and produces no tangible results. So what I thought be be a timesink became a time sink.
An art moment: David Alexander feverishly at work in his studio. We have some fabulous works in now! Please come by for a sneak peek…you just may find something for the Holidays!

Girl with a Pearl Earring (After Vermeer) by Joachim Gmoser.
This painting is another example of artist Gmoser’s mastery of oil paints. Gmoser adores the work of Vermeer and did several glorious studies of his work in order to both celebrate Vermeer’s genius as well as to learn the secrets of a great artist only available to those who try to replicate their works.
The original Vermeer artwork is a tronie, the Dutch 17th-century description of a 'head' that was not meant to be a portrait. It depicts a European girl wearing an exotic dress, an oriental turban, and an improbably large pearl earring. In 2014, Dutch astrophysicist Vincent Icke raised doubts about the material of the earring and argued that it looks more like polished tin than pearl on the grounds of the specular reflection, the pear shape and the large size of the earring.
The original work is signed "IVMeer" but not dated. It is estimated to have been painted around 1665.
After the most recent restoration of the painting in 1994, the subtle colour scheme and the intimacy of the girl's gaze toward the viewer have been greatly enhanced.
During the restoration, it was discovered that the dark background, today somewhat mottled, was initially intended by the painter to be a deep enamel-like green. This effect was produced by applying a thin transparent layer of paint, called a glaze, over the present-day black background. However, the two organic pigments of the green glaze, indigo and weld, have faded.
