As usual - lovely pictures. It's nice to see you along with one of the kitties!

The picture with your reflection seems very "Vermeer-like." I reviewed every Vermeer I could, but there really is no equivalent pose/mirror picture; however, the pose and expression seemed very much something he might have done. I suppose that sounds a little loopy, but it was the impression the photo made. I wonder if anyone can point perhaps to another artist's style (let's of course crop out or blur the electronic gear in the background).

More broadly than Vermeer: Flemish portraiture: Jan Van Eyck's Arnolfini Wedding Portait. The challenge of painting a reflection in a convex mirror was contemporary.


Here's that Van Eyck portrait (good comparison -- note artist's reflection in mirror):
