Art In the Time of Corona

During the pandemic lockdown in 2020, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles posted a challenge on Twitter encouraging people at home to choose their favorite artwork from the Getty collection, recreate it using three things around the house, and share the results with the Getty on Twitter.  The response was overwhelming, and hundreds of artistic renditions poured in. Like many of the Getty's other followers, I jumped into the challenge, and though my first few art recreations were very simple, I had so much fun that I've continued to recreate artworks to this day. Using costumes and props from my collection, and my continuing study of photo editing, I've been able to produce some  fairly complex works.  Following are some of my favorites, which will soon be seen (along with other of my works) in my upcoming book Art in the Time of Corona, available in late 2024 from Prospective Press.

Norman Rockwell, Girl With A Black Eye

This work was inspired by an accident that left me with an actual black eye (many of my followers suggested this piece).  It was lucky that I ended up with a black eye on the same side as the painting's subject!
