My Favorite Art
Spring seems to finally be here and all the lovely colors that
come with it.
After all the long winter months I can't seem to get enough of these wonderful colors which make me instantly think of my favorite artists, Mary Cassatt and Auguste Renoir, and I thought who better to share some of my favorite works with, than my
nonexistent, I mean, readers!
I absolutely love the moment caught in this segment of one of his larger works, the yellow and red in the woman's hat really complement the small dog's fur. Whenever I see this piece I can't help but smile!
Hug Me! This woefully sweet portrait is one of my favorite Renoir pieces done with his soft signature brush strokes, not to mention the striking warm brown tones.
This piece has such character! The dog asleep on the chair is Mary Cassatt's Griffon Terrier, who was a gift from her good friend Degas. Part of what I love about this piece is that it is so far from the stiff posed portraits of its day, it was a part
of a whole new era.
