I did this one over for the series as my other effort art book and self portrait 7 I thought was way too harsh using flash. I like the floor lamp better for lighting.. Today we woke up to frigid temperatures of minus 10 below...Needless to say I like seeing the flowers in this book in a warmer version . It is not an easy project and have deleted several attempts that were showing glare on the glossy pages, consequently have been trying different ways of holding the book.

The painting reproduction on the left page was done by Jan Van Huijsum (1682-1749) entitled "Hollyhocks and Other Flowers in A Vase." It was from the earlier years of the artist's career before the early 1720's...on the right side the picture is entitled "Portrait of a Man" About 1665 by the artist Gerard Ter Borch (1617-81,)I was fortunate to buy this used art book at a library book sale awhile back entitled, "The Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer by J.M Nash" and it is about 17th century Dutch paintings done by master artists of that era.

It shall be so nice
Instead of seeing ice....
And drifting snow...
To watch hollyhocks grow
Like the flowers in a vase....
By an artist from long ago,
Who had dignity with grace
Painting honor to extol....
Thru' beauty of his soul!
