Carma Takes on the Masters (LOL)

More sights and quips from our trip to come, but in the meantime, a new reader to my blog inquired if I had any of my artwork on my blog. Evidently, she had read my bio where I say that my artwork is more "who did it and ran than Rembrandt." Someone read my bio! Someone read my bio!!

I plan to post some of my "original" pieces in the future, but during the trip I took photos of some of the paintings that I did studies of years ago. I thought it would be fun to post the originals as I photographed them in the museums- and then my versions.

First, VanGogh's "Wheat Field with Cypresses" (or as we like to refer to it "Cypri").

The Master (on display at The MET):

The Carma Version:
You'll notice several differences. The first thing is that the scale of the painting has been changed completely. This is due to the fact that I never measure anything or prepare in advance. (That's how I roll - but it doesn't make for a precise copy of anything - recipes included!)

Secondly, Picasso's "The Studio":

The Master (on display at MOMA):

The Carma Version:


Picasso's "Girl Before a Mirror" (as seen at MOMA):

A one minute study by me (my colors were limited as well as the time!):

And here's a piece I did not see on our trip, but which I also painted, Picasso's "Woman in Studio":

And the Carma Version:


It took me forever to get the angle of the head/nose correctly, and I never quite managed to do it!

Anyway, hope you enjoyed this artistic journey!
