Great Minds

I was scrolling around on Pinterest the other day and found this painting that seemed awfully familiar to me.

This painting is Girl with Cat by Heinrich Vogeler.  Its similarities to a painting that I did a few years ago struck me immediately.

Do you see it?  I mean, obviously my painting is more cropped and features a puppy instead of a cat, but still…is that not crazy-go-nuts?  Especially when you consider that mine was completed almost a hundred years after Girl with Cat.  When I completed this painting (called Thompson and I) I remember thinking “I haven’t ever seen a painting like this.”  Well, it just goes to show you that there is nothing new under the sun.
