Mine is the one on the left
As I walked through main campus today I came across this display window.  I was surprised to see my master copy painting in there.  Though I wasn't able to take the best picture with my phone.  The assignment was to do an achromatic painting; out of the possible choices I choose this.
St. Francis - Zurbaran
Here's mine
again not the best picture taken with my phone
the angle is wrong, some of the picture is cut off and table added

About your window's happy height 
     The roses wove their airy screen: 
More radiant than the blossoms bright 
     Looked your fair face between.

The glowing summer sunshine laid 
     Its touch on field and flower and tree; 
But 't was your golden smile that made 
     The warmth that gladdened me.

The summer withered from the land, 
     The vision from the window passed: 
Blank Sorrow looked at me; her hand 
     Sought mine and clasped it fast.

The bitter wind blows keen and drear, 
     Stinging with winter's flouts and scorns, 
And where the roses breathed I hear 
     The rattling of the thorns. 

Celia Thaxter
