The Girl with the Pearl Earring, originally painted by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, around 1665-1667.
In this version the girl is combined with flowers from a still life by an unknown painter from the same period. The colours have been made more subdued so that the girl fits in with the metal background.
A rough and unpolished but at the same time tender work of art.

The stylists at Art Heroes call my works "Art with a Wink". And I couldn't agree more. Life is serious enough, isn't it? ;-)
I mainly make surrealist works and collages because I can so wonderfully unleash my creativity and my boundless imagination on those! But I also enjoy gratefully taking advantage of the fact that museums all over the world make their old master paintings available digitally and then unleash my own creative touch on them.
Everything you see in my shop, I have created digitally myself, on my computer, with image editing programmes such as Photoshop. The "old-fashioned way", because I prefer to leave the generation of art to my own imagination rather than let artificial intelligence create it for me.
You will also find some photos taken by me (my other great hobby). The "disadvantage" of photography is that I am dependent on what appears in front of my lens, as I cannot photograph things that are not there. With my digital paintings, I can go in any direction I want and I really enjoy that.
Hopefully you'll find something that appeals to you in my shop. In any case, know that I made everything with a lot of love, attention and pleasure!
