A fresh take on Vermeer’s classic, this painting can be enjoyed from afar or near and has a whimsical almost playful quality to it. This is one of many paintings where I chose specific iconic or relatively known subject matter, I like the challenge of such works, especially when attempting to do a spinoff of a master work such as Vermeer’s ‘Girl with a pearl earring’ (made 1665), no small task. I look at this like a writer who types his or her favorite book by their favorite author, I will never be Vermeer, that is ridiculous, I am Mahaloness after all.

Hi my name is hälts, I am an artist, geographer, filmmaker and mostly a human being. Art is a gift that has been with us for time immortal. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I consider myself to be a hybrid artist. I make murals, digital art, painting (acrylic and watercolour), filmmaking, photography and drawing. I inspire while also being inspired. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. I care about this planet, and all the life it sustains. Thank you kindly, hälts
