Well Known Art
This is the Girl with a Pearl Earring
by artist Johannes Vermeer.
It is well known art.
However, the painting above is not Vermeer's but a copy created by our son Andrew.
Andrew started painting about two years ago.
Since he has created hundreds of drawings and paintings.
Some are copies like this one, used for learning and practice.
Others are originals from photographs we sent Andrew.
Others are his own creation. Our hope is that someday Andrew's work becomes Well Known Art
They include pencil drawings, charcoal, water colors, oils and acrylics.
Media varies from linen cloth to paper to canvas.
Here is a sampling of his work.

As you can see, Andrew creates a great variety of artwork.
And this without a single personal lesson.
We are very proud of him and hope to help sell some of his creations.
We are not at all versed in how to do this. Perhaps one of you, who knows, can write back.
Andrew and we would appreciate anything you can do.
To see all of Andrews work, launch Well Known Art
With love, Pete, Ellen and Mandy
