An Art Work of Fiction?

Girl With A Pearl Earring
by Tracy Chevalier

Last week I picked up a book at Half Price Books
mainly because of the cover.


The Girl With The Pearl Earring by Vermeer was on the cover.  
Chevalier takes the painting and weaves a tale about the girl in the painting, who she was and how she came to be in the painting.  It is a beautiful painting and a wonderful book.
It is on the New York Times Bestseller list.

Here's a link to the book on Amazon 

This was a quick read, but more than that, it really brought the painting to life and explained what life was like in the 1660's in Copenhagen.  

Another way to enjoy beautiful art. 

I may not be able to teach you to paint like Vermeer, but,
I can teach you to paint from the ground up
with my new online beginning painting course.
