Some time ago, I did a series of paintings where I appropriated old master paintings, incorporating my own ideas. Just recently I decided to revisit this idea, wanting to see if I could push things a little more, and perhaps generate ideas for other paintings. As I began this painting, my first thought was to exclude the ermine, but being such an iconic element in the painting, I didn't feel that it was working as well without it. So at one point decided it should be pink. Toward the end of working on it, I had the idea for the finger tattoos.
