While browsing through my art books I came across a particular work by Jan Vermeer.
Something about the woman’s face and the way she was holding a book inspired me to
create this little aceo painting.  I wasn’t trying to duplicate the Vermeer painting of this woman. 
Instead I just wanted to capture her essence and (or course) give her a pet bunny to hold.
