"Sister Act"

10 x 10"
oil on panel

This new painting took a good part of a week.  There's something that happens to me when I'm painting a John Singer Sargent piece - call it an overwhelming respect for accuracy.  His colors and brush strokes are complex.  That's what made him a master at his craft.

From the Museum of Fine Arts Boston - one of their prized possessions, John Singer Sargent's 'The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit'.

You continue to be my absolute favorite artist....and I have a lot of favorites! I love this painting. I also did a painting of this...but I really like your rendition. I wish you would do another workshop as I would love to paint with you again.
