The Image I Wish I Had Created

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer. His use of light is astonishing and I immediately fell in love with his work. I, to this day, try to create the gorgeous light in my works that I find in his.

That piece is tied with The Kiss by Klimt. My love for the surreal and strong use of colour come directly from his work.
