The first 2, Lady pouring Milk, and Lady with the Balance are continuations of my Vermeer reconstruction series I started in 2015. They have won prizes and commendations and been exhibited in many local galleries, including Studio 617, and Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Files and Prints, St Petersburg, Platformz, and Fuego in St Petersburg, Jose Gomez Galleries and Tampa Museum of Photographic Art in Tampa. Thanks to models Jessica Kisiel, and Stephanie Byrne
