So very in the spirit of Hals.
And I love the collor of your wall.

Historical clothing and portrait style meets contemporary clothing and portrait style. I love it! I chose this as my favorite painting on my blog, Rosa's Picks. I hope you'll come by and check it out! Thanks, Rosa

I like how the viewer mimics the body language in the museum piece. I've seen this in other paintings of yours -clever.

It is always amazing to me how you can reproduce a painting in such a teeny tiny space. Love how you captured the body language of the patron.

BEautiful painting and I am loving my easel! I use it all the time and it is my favorite by far.

Just purchased the new Altereasel. It is sturdy, well built and easily adjustable-very well made. My panels no longer fall off my easel. It accommodates a variety of sizes and thicknesses-ingenious!

Wonderful painting and I LOVE the name! I can't help but laugh about the body language mimicing.
