– Mary Cassatt –
In addition to making art, I’ve always loved simply looking at art. When I’m feeling uninspired to paint I look at good art until the spark comes back to me. This painting by the beautiful Mary Cassatt was one of those “sparklers.” The real goodness of this painting is seen when you can see it close up. Click the image to see it larger, and watch her brushwork come to life! An additional viewing pleasure is to look through this online collection of Mary’s work. I think some of her lesser-known works are some of her best!
