Days Paintings of Christmas
This is an original oil painting “Vermeer”. This is not a Vermeer…or is it? I came across this piece of Vermeer farm machinery in a freshly hayed meadow in East Dover, Vermont. This scene tickled my funny bone so I set up my easel immediately and went to work.
In order for me to appreciate this visual pun, I had to be able to hold multiple layers of reality of this at once in my mind. The finding of farm machinery in a meadow in Vermont is no unusual thing but because of the brand logo my brain kicked into art history mode. Johannes Vermeer was a 17th century Dutch painter famous for his genre portraits and interiors (think of The Girl with the Pearl Earring). The closest that he ever came to painting a landscape that I know of were some cityscapes of his hometown Delft. Unusual for his name to be in any way associated with a landscape.
