This blog has already paid off helping me kick-start my creative juices. My creativity was starting to lag because all of my ideas were being pushed through the filter of Bent Objects possibilities. It's really been quite incredible how my mind has opened up to new directions, and between this new blog, Bent Objects, my animated short, and planning an app, I've been incredibly productive.
Anyway, since I haven't had time to work on the next image in the book I'm working from, I've decided to choose an image from my mailbag which came in from a visitor here. She calls it "Finger-trap" for good reason, and the name of said responder is Ariel Allon. Ariel, you have a pretty cool name.
If you have a response to a masterpiece that you'd like to send me, please do. I'll probably be posting more of them. My email is HERE.

Saint Jerome in his Study
This painting just didn't interest me in the slightest. There will be some on
my list that will be like that I'm afraid.
And my response. Don't strain your eyes trying to spot the difference.
The good news is, I'm looking forward to the next.

The guy handing Juno the head of Argos is Mercury.
And my response, an issue that boys the world over would have kept hidden under their mattresses.

Albrecht didn't skimp on detail.
(that's Alexander the Great in the chariot on the left)
and my response-
This was more work than you would imagine. Or maybe I should say, it was my work than I had imagined. Ha!

Algardi was one of the biggies in the sculpture world during the 17th century.
He sculpted the Cardinal here somewhere around 1625.
I've responded by taking a closer look at it-
The next response has a soundtrack, and features this one.
