Thank you, dear friends!
I am very honored to be here with the works of true masters! :-)
This photo actually was not taken for DPC. My daughter's friend from a dance class is half Dutch, and I noticed the resemblance with Vermeer's girl on one of the photos from the rehearsal. Her mom loved the idea of trying to recreate the painting! I believe one of the canvases she printed is in Holland, in the girl's grandparent's house.
Here's the beginning of the project, the end, and of course the inspiration.

I was one of your 10s. You captured both the resemblance and the spirit of innocence in this photo. Fantastic work.
