Create Your Own Masterpiece!

Johannes Vermeer’s famous painting, Girl With A Pearl Earring, inspired a book by the same name by contemporary author Tracy Chevalier.  Creating her own version of the circumstances surrounding the painting of this masterpiece, Chevalier’s book was a literary sensation. Your exercise for this week is to select a piece of art and free write about it for 15 minutes – no more, no less.  Who knows, this could become the basis of your next novel!  I would love to read what you come up with!  Send me your pages at
