You Can Bid on This Old Master's Painting at Sotheby's Now


Arthur Devis - PORTRAIT OF THE REVEREND THOMAS D'OYLY WITH HIS WIFE, HENRIETTA MARIA, FULL-LENGTH IN AN INTERIOR
                estimate 100,000 to 150,000 U$D


My version (No photoshopping, just Apple Page adjustments).  I could make more minor adjustments.  But this was just a 40 minute project.  As is, the door-wall is quiet Escher-like in it's impossible geometry, but is that not part of its charm?

My New Fonts! Animal + Scratchy




You can type with these fonts if you want.

*The fox's body, legs and tail are not part of a font character.  All else is other than the hill.

A Lost Hammershøi Masterpiece Rediscovered?


Actually, no.  It is a montage from two of his paintings.  No Photoshop, only Mac Pages was used. Here is the equation...


Made into a book cover...

This integrated faux-painting reminds me of  a Vermeer painting at the Met where you can see into a background room.  And if you asked me my favorite room(s) at the Met, I would say the ones in the Vermeer.
